My pool right now is crystal clear but I've noticed that it's going through free chlorine much faster than normal. It's a lot hotter now. Above 100 everyday and the pool feels very warm. Here were a lot of palm flowers in the pool the other day so I considered that there may have been algae building up so I started slamming it for the entire day. Got my FC Levels above 24 and ran the pump constantly, but I had to work so I wasn't able to add chlorine while I was at work the next day.
As soon as I got home I tested and my FC Level was 12. That seems like a dramatic drop right? It did rain all last night too. Can that effect FC Levels? Pool is in constant sun as well. Here are the other numbers:
Should I keep slamming? Is this just normal for a hot Arizona summer?
