On Aug 17th I noticed the pool was cloudy. Full disclosure, I neglected the pool for 1-1.5 weeks. FC was zero, ph was 7.2, so after reading the SLAM procedure, I added liquid chlorine. Based on my CYA (40), I needed a Shock free chlorine level of 24. So I wanted to keep it above that. 12 gallons and the reading was 31. dropped 6 points in an hour. I cleaned it daily, back-washed daily, etc. Gradually adding less chlorine and then on the morning of the 20th, the level was 29, and the pool was "pretty clear". You know where I'm going with this.....I didn't reach the 3 endpoints, but I stopped checking and adding chlorine. August 21 at 10 am the fc level is 6 and the CC is 1. The FC level had dropped too rapidly. So I started all over. By now the pool is pretty clear but not CRYSTAL clear (which it normally is). I did the pool math. Based on the fc of 6 and the level I wanted, I added 4 gallons. The fc was 60. 7 hours later was 50. 20 hours later it is 38. CC is 0.5. So my plan was to continue checking two times per day and keep the FC level above 24. Can you think of anything I'm missing. I'd like to be done with this sometime this week. Feeling a little stressed with my pool. I just feel like the FC levels are still dropping too quickly to be this far into the process.
