Current chemistry as of today:
FC: 7.5 FC:2
CC: 0 CC: 0
I just finished SLAMing yesterday, hence the FC of 7.5 this morning. I know that we should be checking FC at least once daily, but here is my concern and question. We get good sunlight on our pool from about 9:30 - 17:00 here in KC. With the FC being 7.5ppm this morning and then it being 2ppm tonight my concern is the decrease in FC throughout the day. By adding the amount, here in a moment, that POOLMATH gives me to get the FC up to 5ppm it will only maintain that for a few hours tomorrow according to what happened today. So do I check it multiple times through out the day and live with the fact of adding chlorine throughout the day? Or, do I go with adding an amount for a higher level of FC, keeping below SLAM level for my CYA, so that I don't have to add chlorine multiple times through out the day? I would think I could probably do either one, just want to see and hear what others may be doing.
I hope this makes sense if not please let me know. My concern is I will be adding chlorine non stop and ultimately could see it leading into it costing me just as much as purchase junk from the pool store. If I have to spend hundreds of dollars on bleach then I would rather do that instead of a stupid chlorinator or floater in my pool.
Thanks for the help and God Bless.
