    California Draught, too much CYA, cloudy pool.

    I switched from 3" tablets last year due to high CYA levels. I switched to Calcium Hypochlorite (shock) that results in keeping the algae at bay but the calcium, I assume clouds the pool. This year I have switched to liquid chlorine (for about 1 month now) but because of the high CYA levels, I...

    Cloudy water after 4 days of filtering.

    I also have a cloudy pool because I have been using Calcium Hypochlorite to chlorinate the pool due to high CYA levels already present. My sand filter does not do a good or quick job of filtering out the calcium component. I have gone over to liquid chlorine exclusively for the last two weeks...

Look at all of the problems users have had with their Maytronics cleaners on this forum. The common problem: "my unit turns on...

    What is the best chlorine product to use?

    I have been using Leslie's granular chlorine since the pool was new but no have to put too much in w/respect to CYA levels. I am now using liquid chlorine which is actually Sodium Hypochlorite. Will the CYA already in the pool at a high level protect the chlorine and as a result will have high...
