I need some help. I'm losing too much FC every day and I can't figure out why!
I added 3 cups 6 oz of bleach to increase FC to 7 (it increased to 6.5 later that night).
I added 6 oz muriatic acid to decrease pH to 7.4 (it keeps rising, I'm guessing due to lots of swimming and splashing). I just decreased it from 8 to 7.6 on 6/30/16.
I'm going to add 3 cups of household Bleach again now to increase the FC back up to 7. I thought I read your only supposed to lose less than 1ppm of FC daily or else something else is going on. I live in GA and my pool temp has stayed around 88-90 degrees the last new days. Could that be why? But my CYA is in range with where I'm trying to keep my FC according to the chart. Should I keep my FC higher than 7?
Thanks! I'm still new and figuring things out. But I have to say, my water has been crystal clear since day 1 so something is working!
