We went through a couple of partial drains & refills over the last 24 hrs & have succeeded in lowering our CYA to 44. YAY! We have not yet added any chemicals & have completely removed all tri-chlor pucks from the auto feed and skimmer baskets. Here are my current numbers:
CH (don't know because I ran out of reagent in my K-2006)
What balancing (if any) do I need to do? Based on reading the forums, I think my targets for TA, ph & CH may have changed from pool store recommendations. What are my targets?
I KNOW THAT I HAVE TO ADD BLEACH TO RAISE FC, but thought I should do that tonight & raise to shock level...esp. since the problem that caused me to convert to BBB & do all the draining to lower CYA was because I couldn't maintain FC over .2 no matter how much chlorine I added. Is that the right approach?
We would really love to swim. We have had weeks of really high temps & bright sunlight on the pool all day. Is it realistic to hope that we can swim tomorrow if we shock successfully tonight?
Thanks for your help!!!
