    My CYA is 50. Pool is 34000 gal. Pool is in full sustaining about 10am in summer. My questions: 1. What should I expect daily FC loss to be for my pool given cya 50 2. Should I increase cya to 60? Will it help or hurt, and how do I determine that? Thank you for help.

    New pebble in with glass, filling with water...

    My automation is iAqualink. My PB told me the spa and pool run on same main pump. I assume this means turning on main pump will cause spillways to turn on. Do you think there is a way to keep spillways from running? I think if I put it into soa mode, the spa will drain enough to stop...

    New pebble in with glass, filling with water...

    My main pump works water for both spa and pool, unless I turn the soa mode on, in which case water in spa becomes separate from pool, and spillways don't run. Thanks for advice. Yeah that's my mission now...track and correct fc and pH. This in turn corrects TA. I did your method for CYA...

    Thanks for advice on cya. Will try next time. Another question. My pH raises real quick. I assume that's due to new plaster. I try to bump it down to about 7.3 in the morning,, but by next morning it's at 8.0. Should I bump it down to 7.1 or so? Add more frequently? What's a good value to...
