So I opened my pool on Saturday and it was crystal clear just as I closed it. Less than 10mins of vaccuming needed to get some small debris from bottom.
I threw in 1gallon of 12% liquid bleech and got all my equipment running the first day.
I took my first readings the following day after having the pump run overnight. My FC read at 10PPM, my CC=0, CYA =90, PH 7.0
I have added some PH plus to get that level up. I was very surprised at my FC & CYA level. Do those numbers seem possible for a pool that was closed up since last summer (other than the fact I added chlorine)?
just read another thread and I am questioning my CYA level based on how I did the test...I was under an umbrella sitting at the table. Will re-do this first tomorrow to see if I need to get some stabilizer in there asap before my FC disappears into the sunset!
I have a Taylor kit and have been using it for a couple of years now, so I have it down. I plan on taking another set of readings tomorrow since we had rain overnight.
