    CYA - issues high?

    We purchased a house with a pool! Congrats to us!

    Ok, really this is our 2nd summer but first that we will care for it ourselves.

    Up to this point we have had a service taking care of it for us. I purchased a ColorQ and began testing last week. CYA continue to read "HI" so my research and discovery of this forum began.

    I drained at least half the pool, 14k gallon, and filled back up. We were out of town the next few days so the pool has sat untouched until today. I ordered a K-2006c test kit which I started with Testing CYA! It's still over 100ppm.

    Unfortunately we are getting pounded on by rain right now so it is the only test I was able to get in before the rain began. I plan on testing in the morning.

    I suspect I am back to draining again but perhaps even more this time.
    Pflugerville (Austin) Texas - 14,000 in ground plaster/pebble using cartridge (CV460) filtration system. Currently testing with a Taylor K-2006c test kit - Using Liquid Chlorine - No SPA or SWG. Pool was build in 2013
