We just had a remodel done, and I'm trying to get our chemistry in line. I have read and read these posts about water chemistry and thought I had it down, but still have a few questions.
Is there a proper sequence that is ALWAYS the right way to bring the different parameters in line, or does it depend? It seems that it should go alkalinity, pH, then chlorine, but I'm not sure how CYA fits in, can that go in anytime? The other CYA thing I'm confused about is the relation to chlorine ppm. I've read that your chlorine levels depend on your CYA levels, so if I'm starting from zero, do I want to go with the minimum numbers so that I can keep my chlorine lower?
Finally, if I'm going to use the BBB method, do I still use tablets from a floater or feeder? I thought those had stabilizer in them that would keep raising my CYA.
I know thats a lot to ask, but any help would be greatly appreciated!
