Can someone tell me what adding too much trichlor granules will do to your water chemistry and the long term effects of this when it comes to not reducing the chlorine level but continue to try and balance your water (specifically ph)?
Some background to this question is first year of pool (2014) I had some dark marks on the pool floor. We checked the water sample and everything was within an acceptable range (balanced). To treat the marks, PB turned off equipment, added 15 X 16oz Solo cup scoops of trichlor granules into the pool, let it sit on the floor for 6 hours, then had me turn on the equipment and brush to ensure it was dissolved and off the floor.
PB instructed me to keep everything else balanced and the chlorine will burn out in time. I remember having a time keeping it balanced.
What effects does too much chlorine have when it comes to balancing the pool and getting false readings?
Thanks in advance,
