    Rain Rain Rain - SO....

    ...What should I do about the chems? pumping water out every day. so far all is good but for the FAC which was low -2. I dumped some bleach in.
    The CH was 325
    CYA was 70
    TA was 90
    pH looked sky high but I want the husband to double check me. Is there another test that I can buy for testing? I hate the subjective what color do you think it is?

    I feel like if I add anything it's almost a waste and it's gonna rain, I hear, for two weeks!

    Advice, please.

    DMS,

    Well, rain or not, you need to keep your FC up. If I read signature correctly this is a Saltwater pool..

    You need to target about 5 ppm if your CYA is 70. Are you saying you measured an FC of 2 or -2?

    Seems like you need to adjust the % of SWG output up a little, or manually add chlorine,

    Even with a lot of rain, I doubt it will have a major impact on your FC in a 19K pool.

    Thanks,

    Jim R.

    Keep the chlorine in the correct range for your pool or it will go green on you, even with all the rain. I would bring the pH down too as it can cause problems if it is too high for too long. As for the rest of the values I would wait until we start to dry out a little before adjusting them.

    I don't know where that - came from on the FAC. The chlorine was 4 five days ago and today 2. it just so irritates me. We seem to always go up and down. I put some chlorine in.

    Check your salt level, too.
