Hello. I live in Central Florida. The heat is on now. Everyday I am adding an average of 3 to 6 cups of liquid chlorine (from the pool store) depending if the day before was sunny all day or cloudy.
I am trying to kept my FC close to what my CYA tell me using the table here.
The current reading today using my Taylor K-2006c was as follow:
FC 9.5 (yesterday was 8, I added 6 cups of liquid chlorine. Maybe I added to much)
Usually I lost one or two ppm of FC. Of course, I am adding daily certain amount of cups depending of the test result.
Question: Is this is a (give or take) normal daily loss of FC?
By following the instructions here and reading your recommendation to others I now have a crystal clear sparkling pool but can't let the FC to go below the recommended amount or I may see a little patch of algae. I am brushing every two days or so. Not because of algae problems. I just want to kept it clean.
I don't think I need to slam my pool but would like your opinion about it.
Thank you for you help and information.
