Hello all I believe this is my first post. I've read at detail what I need to do to clear up my pool that wasn't closed properly last year. I didn't create a signature or anything yet, and I just ordered the right test kit from this website.
My question is, I am currently backwashing about every two hours as the pressure starts at about 12 and rises to about 22 in two hours. I really want to be able to let the filter run overnight but I am afraid it can't be left unattended for a complete overnight. I have been testing with the Taylor K1004 and this does not give me a CYA reading, but I added a half gallon of muriatic acid earlier this morning after discovering the PH wasn't even registering below 8.something (the tester doesnt show that high. Any suggestions to let my filter keep on filtering?
