Third week in pool, numbers using bleach, CYA and baking soda. Bubble cover most of the day and @ night:
Temp 86 F
I added 4 lbs CYA (socks in skimmer) to the pool over a week ago and barely got to 20.
My reasoning is as follows: Use Dichlor to add chlorine and CYA over the next week to maintain my FC. Approx. 5 lbs of Dichlor should raise my CYA to 40 - 45.
Since it dissolves quickly, will the CYA test be accurate within 12-24 hrs after adding the Dichlor?
Would adding Borates (So you want to add borates to your pool--Why and How) be best after I get the CYA in line?
