Ok, so I have been reading on the forum for several months now, and have been following the program in my own pool for the last month now.
My first question is what is the down side of keeping my FC in the 5-16 range all the time, if my CYA is at 40? Does it hurt anything to keep it up near or slightly over slam levels over night if it is dropping so much in the day?
I do seem to use about 121oz of 8.25 % ea. day with temps in the upper 90's. The pool is in full sun from about 9am till 7pm. Water temperature is hitting 92-95 by evening.
Todays loss was only 3ppm because of cooler night temps and cloudy daytime.
I know someone is going to ask for an OCLT, but the last week we seem to get some amount of rain most every evening. So, that would throw off the test if I had time to do it at 4:30 am b4 work. So no I haven't done that yet. To do to do........
Second question is if I'm doing a FC test every day and I'm shooting for 8-16 range, can I use 5ml in the test and still have an accurate test result? It should be one drop for each ppm.
