    Re: CYA

    A good CYA level for use with a SWG is between 70 and 80. Because it is fairly easy to raise CYA, but very difficult to lower CYA, it is best to raise your CYA level is several steps. Therefore, it is best to raise CYA to perhaps 60 right now, wait for that to dissolve, test the water and then make the final adjustment based on that.

    To find out how much stabilizer/conditioner to add to raise the CYA level to 60 you can use my pool calculator, see the link in my signature. Enter the number of gallons in your pool, your current CYA level and a target level of 60 and it will tell you how much CYA to add.
