Hello all. I have sorted out most of my issues and been through the SLAM process with your help only to discover that my SWG is toast so now I am using Bleach to maintain my FC.
my current complete test results are below:
My CYA is high because I thought I'd be using the SWG. I'll accept the higher FC level I need to maintain because of that.
My question is that I'm loosing an average of 5.5ppm FC every day with very low swimmer load my wife and myself every evening for a cool down of half hour to an hour in length. My CC is regularly at 0.5 or 0.0. I have done an OCLT 3 times where I start with an FC of 10-12 and its less than 1ppm loss three days in a row. Given that it has been hot and sunny 90-95degF and the pool gets a good solid 8 hours of direct sun every day is this 5.5ppm FC loss in an acceptable range given my high CYA of 75-80? (This is my first pool and i just don't have the experience to rely on for these answers)
Water temp averages 85degF.
