I just got my new pool last winter and now I think I need to SLAM it. I have an SWG and have been using it to keep the pool up to about 5PPM as my target. I noticed lately that I have been having to turn up my SWG to keep the chlorine level up. Well lately I have my SWG set to 95% and the chlorine level has been dropping so I started supplementing with liquid chlorine. Last week was super busy for me so I just poured in a bottle on Wed afternoon when my FC dropped down to 1.5 which should have raise the FC to around 10. I tested again Friday and the FC was around 6.5 so I dumped in another 1/2 gallon because my wife and I went out of town for the weekend for our anniversary.
I tested again after dark at 9p.m. and shut off the SWG. My FC was 5.5 and this morning at 6am it was 2.5. I turned on the SWG and left to work. I only have 1/2 gallon left of liquid chlorine. I have a late night meeting tonight until 10 tonight.
With all that said my water is clear. I test at least every other day with the SWG running and so far my pool has been pretty good. Should I start and dump the FC in tonight? I could put some more in tomorrow as well. I am hoping the SWG can maintain for me while I am at work for the most part. I could have my wife dump some in too during the day but I don't know how willing she will be to test
Here are my latest test results...
FC 2.5 (this morning)
CC 0 (sometimes is slightly pink <0.5 but never more)
Water temp varies from 88 to 92.
