I test my water twice a day, early morning and mid afternoon. I only have a cheap little test kit and test strips while I await my Taylor K2006 that I ordered.
My ph level has been within safe range since opening the pool and my CH level has also been within range, until this afternoon. It is slightly low. It doesnt help that its 98 degrees and always in direct sunlight. I have an auto chlorinator with 4 pucks in it and also a floating dispenser with 3 pucks in it. Should I add liquid bleach to raise the CH to a safe range?
Also, when is the best time to run the filter, on low speed or high speed? And for how long? I have been running it on low speed from the morning til evening, about 10 hrs a day.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
