Also question is, do I need to add cyanuric acid to my saltwater pool?
Cyanuric Acid in a Saltwater Pool In fact, you should use more than pools that chlorinate with Trichlor tablets. Hayward and Pentair both recommend 60-80 ppm of cyanuric acid for their salt systems. As cyanuric acid bonds to chlorine, the chlorine residual can build faster.
Beside above, what causes cyanuric acid to be high in a pool? High cyanuric acid amounts in your pool are likely caused simply by applying too much of the chemical into the pool. Too much cyanuric acid results in increased cloudiness of the pool water. If you have too much cyanuric acid in your pool, safely replace the water with new, clean water.
Keeping this in consideration, how do I adjust the cyanuric acid in my pool?
Pour the liquid or powdered cyanuric acid into the pool. Add the dissolved cyanuric acid or liquid cyanuric acid directly into the pool instead of into the filter tanks or skimmers. Once you've added the cyanuric acid, check the water's pH level and adjust it as necessary.
Is it safe to swim in a pool with high cyanuric acid?
It is safe to swim in if you keep chlorine levels higher than normal. The cyanuric acid is not harmful itself. A free chlorine level of about 8 would be right for that level of cyanuric acid, if I'm remembering correctly. Your CYA level won't go down through evaporation.
