Last night I put in 3 Gal 6% bleach, and from the BleachCalc and expected that to get my level to 8ppm. Ran the pump continuous, and expect to do this until tomorrow. . My test (FAS/DPD) this morning 10AM had TC = 5.5 (spilled before I could figure out CC). I did the CYA test, but I definitely need more practice to get it right. CYA at the end of last season was about 30 which was low so I added 4Lbs today about 11:30. Looking at what has worked for some others with SWG I want to get CYA up around 70. I know I have to wait about a week to test the CYA again to get an accurate reading. I put about 2 lbs in a sock in from of a return and the 1lb in each of the skimmers. The Autopilot is on Power Level 2 @35%.
Here are the numbers from the pool store (1:30 pm):
TA (w/stabilizer correction) 78
The TA ia a bit low, and I am concerned about the CC. I wanted to shock the pool when the sun goes down to destroy the CC, but I am having party tomorrow and didn't want to do anything that would prevent the kids from going in the pool (the kids are already on me about going in as I type!). The salt level is currently 2700 ppm according to the autopilot, so I was going to add a 40lb bag. Is it possible adding CYN could messing with that reading? Reccomendations on how to proceed are appreciated. Also, the heater is running.
