I dissolved 8lbs of CYA last Sat. to get to 50 by PC. The heat and sun was so relentless this week here in TN. that I added another 2lbs. Wed. When that shows up I should be at 60.
Tested my CYA for first time this a.m. and it only shows 25ppm.
I have been shocking according to the Chlorine/CYA chart, using the CYA number that I've added, even though it wouldn't be showing up.
Shock at 50 CYA=Shock 16
Shock at 60 CYA=Shock 24 (Started this Wed.)
My Cl tests during the day and overnight all week have never gotten below 15. At a CYA reading of 25, that tells me I am there Shock level for a CYA of 25-30 is only 12.
BTW. My water has been crystal clear all week. Even when adding calcium chloride.
Test numbers this a.m.
CC 0 (Haven't had any CC since Mon.)
I'm so ready to turn that SWG on and let it do it's thing
