    We had the Mother of all rain storms

    G'Day folks. Hope all are having a wonderful summer.We had a MAJOR storm last night that was the biggest and heaviest of this lousy wet summer. I just completed my tests. My salt was a bit low the past few days and now I need to add a bag. This AM's #'s are:
    TC-6
    PH-8.2
    TA-100
    CYA-80
    These tests were done about 15 min after starting the pump and draining off LOTS of waste. TA and PH are SO-should I attempt any adjustments now OR add the salt and wait awhile and re-test.

    Cheers

    If you water LEVEL is about right now (you don't need to pump to waste) go ahead and do the PH adjustment. I wouldn't think adding salt now would be a problem as long as you're through pumping water out. We just had a series of 1-2" rain storms too, so I've got to pump out -- level is within 2" of the liner top!

    What's your CC? With all that rain, you should check that... might need to shock.

    Since you did your test after the pump only running for 15 minutes, I think I might test your PH again. If it's still high, then I would adjust it.
