Hello everyone, I'm excited to now be a member after learning so much from this group!
I just RO'd my pool here in southern California because the CYA and CH levels were through the roof. Now I'm in the process of getting all my chemicals balanced, but I'm having a hard time maintaining a FC level.
My numbers yesterday afternoon.
FC = 7
CC = .6
Ph = 7.7
TA = 120
CH = 450
CYA = 70 in ambient sunlight, 50 in bright sunlight (trying to read the black dot)
Temp = 88F
Capacity = 9,000g pebbletec
Today my FC is zero. How do I keep it from dropping that much in one day?
I've read MANY posts trying to grasp the issue, but I'm not sure what my process should be to get it up and keep it up. I realize adding bleach daily may be necessary, but it took around 3 jugs & 6% probably to get it to that point.
A. Is it feasible that I should have to add that much daily?
B. What should be my plan of attack here?
C. Is this a case where I'm on the verge of an algae bloom and I need to shock it?
Thanks for the wonderful advice!
