Too much CYA?

Postby DD » Mon 07 May, 2007 14:09

If I keep adding stabilized chlorine, via the sticks, it seems eventually I will have too much. Does anyone make a chlorine product that doesn't conatain CYA, for when you have enough. Draining the pool and refilling is a little extreme as a method to control CYA levels.

Bleach and granular chlorine do not contain CYA.

Bleach-really?

You mean clorox bleach or what ever like you use in the laundry?

that is the theory. i am skeptical too, but i just did my first dose of shocking. and i might want to add that the chlorine was ~$1.5/gal and it takes 7-8 gal to shock a 30,000 gal pool (1 gal per 1lb of shock you used to use). i used to buy 25lb buckets of zappit shock for $50, so you end up saving $12.50 per 25lbs.

ill let you know how it turns out.

and if you want to read more into it, google search for "the BBB method pool" and that should put you on the right path.

I can attest to the BBB method. I bought a wonderful test kit from another web site, learned everything I needed to manage my pool chemicals, and I do all my own water testing. I laugh now when I see other people bringing their water sample in to the pool store for testing, and all the chemicals they buy. I like to know that I am my own pool expert, and don't have to rely on someone else to sell me chemicals I "NEED". I have had my pool for two years, never had cloudy water, or green water, or chemical imbalances that I can't control. I am eternally grateful for finding this method!! There is another web site called pool solutions (dot) com that I credit for everything I know, and the answers that I sometimes need to find. There should be such alternatives to everything in life!!!

poolsolutions dot com was indeed a great place to learn about your pool, however it is impossible to join as the owner has gone missing.

A lot of the same people and information are now going to www dot troublefreepool dot com. It's a great site.

Since I found out about using bleach I have done a lot more research on pool chemistry. I am so happy with my new found knowledge from the internet pool forums. I've had my pool for about 5 years and spent tons of money throwing "stuff" in the water, no more! :D

Yup...me too! It was a real eye opener to me when I learned that most of those expensive chemicals in the pool store are the exact same thing as the chemicals in the grocery store laundry aisle!

BBB all the way!
