Hello to all,
I have been reading the site for a couple of days and decided I needed to ask for help. Here are the particulars.
I am a new pool owner , I have always wanted a pool. I live in eastern Florida and my pool is IG, gunite with a gemcoat finish. My pool is 10,000 gallons and I have a Sta-Rite System 2, cartridge filter with an automatic chlorinator (it holds 3" tablets).
We have had lots of rain this month, 9.5 inches. My pool was completed in the middle of May 2007. My water has looked beautiful and clear since they filled it. But I do have some lime scale on the wall of my sheer decent.
Now to my problems and questions. After using test strips and not liking the results, I bought a Taylor testing kit. Since it was filled I have had trouble with my chlorine level and my CYA. My CYA is always high, 100-150, and we have tried emptying out water it goes right back to being high. My chlorine is either too high or too low. I am having trouble regulating it with the automatic chlorinator. I think that the chlorine tablets, which have stabilizer in them, is what's making my CYA constantly high.
If anyone has any thoughts or comments I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks so much.
