    Burning eyes

    Yep, another one of these posts.

    Have been using TFP this year and beyond happy.
    Today we swam and our eyes burned the rest of the night.
    First time ever.
    Figured CC must be high or pH out of wack.

    PH 7.6
    FC 5.5
    CC 0.0
    CYA still 50

    so I guess I will test in morning as a OCLT.

    Can't think of anything else.

    Had wicked storm last night and cleaned green leaves this evening.
    Pool is clear.
    Pool installed 8/2015. 30' round Radiant pool. 21,000 gallons. 200# sand. Hayward Vari flow XL valve. 1.5hp Hayward Power-Flo Matrix running 10 hours/day in two periods. TF100 with speed stir. Sun all day, south side of house
    Order test kit TF-100 w/ Speed Stir and then Poolmath Calculator --- RECOMMENDED LEVELS --- POOL SCHOOL --- Algae? --- Chlorine/CYA CHART.

    Re: Burning eyes

    Sorry to hear that. Your water looks fine with respect to pH and CC, the first two things to consider.

    This story changed my eye discomfort, including from the shower: Swimming Teaching: Bloodshot Eyes After Swimming or Sore Eyes From Swimming?

    Increasing the salt level can help.

    Wearing sunglasses around the water can help as well.
    12k IG salt; glass beads in plaster; K-2006C, K-1766, CCL, and Aussie 4in1 (HTH); Pentair Eco800 1.2HP VS; Zodiac SWC 1.3 lb/day (25 g/hr); 25" filter recycled glass; OKU solar panels; 1/2 HP solar pump; Rebel (Warrior) pool cleaner; FlowViz; prior pool AG 10k | Read Before Posting to get the best possible advice | ... and this helped me a lot!: TFPC for Beginners

    guess I need to go back to no sunscreen on the forehead and using sunglasses
