I have a brand new 24 ft round pool
cartridge filter with 2 hp hayward pump...
I shocked pool today with 1 pound of the shock provided.
Ph is 7.6
Alk is about 150
FC is right at 5 ppm
My question is now I need to add CYA...but I am not sure about the best way to do that...I have been told I could run it through skimmer, but I have been told by a more trusted source from here to put it in a sock and hang in pool...if this is the case are we talking a skimmer sock or a regular tube sock or a nylon stocking? How do I know which is the best way. I am also going to be cautions...the CYA that I have says 1 lb for 4000 gallons...since my pool is just shy of 15000 gallons I am going to start wtih two pounds and test and then see where it goes from there. Any suggestions...i don't want to put too much in.
