I'm using Taylor k2006 to test inground plaster pool 16000 gallons. My hardness was 350 and alkalinity 100. Ph 7.4
I think my cya is 70 if I'm doing it right. Taking reading when I can barely see black dot.
I'm still showing very little chlorine.

Pool is clear.
Im getting conflicting info at pool stores.

My faucet water that I refresh pool with tends to be high in hardness and ph.
My question is, is my cya and hardness too high?

And what should I use to get a higher chlorine level?

Ok, as I see from another post my cya is most likely lower then 70 because it wasn't completely gone, just barely visible when I took reading.

Add liquid chlorine (bleach) to raise FC. ASAP
With CYA of ~60 your minimum should be 5FC with a target of 7 to 9.
