Now you're mixing up three concepts, CYA, pH and alkalinity. There is a correction factor for carbonate alkalinity suggested by Taylor Tech for water having a pH outside the norm or high CYA. But this factor introduces only a minor correction to TA.

I like to be informed and to inform my clients as to what exactly they are putting in their pools. I am not in the pool "business" and I do not sell chemicals. But YOU of all people should know what you are selling.

You've either got WAY too much chlorine or not enough. Poeple take YOUR route and then come in about ready to take their pools down because they run through tons of equipment and liners.
Well, you probably think trichlor is 90% chlorine because it says so on the label. See, the secret is training and knowledge, I'm trying to steer people away from the pool store and the bad advice. Maintaining a pool is not rocket science. But yes, it boils down to proper testing and . . . just buying chlorine.
