    I prob should have waited till the evening but owell. Will do it again then. Im sure i prob messed up something. First let me say I have tabs in my chlorinator Im going to go remove them right now. Cut my filter back to 8 hours a day. Been running it 24 7 for about 4 days while I got rid of some algae.

    If you still have algae I would still run it 24/7 until you get rid of it.

    The 38 CYA is a guesstimate, I hope. If the tabs in the Chlorinator have CYA in them, leave 'em alone. They'll raise the level up to 50 or so at no additional expenditure. When you get to where you want, pull them out. Or just don't refill it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
