I've been pretty overwhelmed with deadlines and pulled the first of more to come all nighters last night. I tested water a few minutes ago; FC 2. My range with CYA 60 is 5-9. I went out to shed to get the bleach DH forgot to get bleach at Costco yesterday. I know, I should have gone out to the shed last night to get bleach after testing. I didn't test. The FC is 2 but it was probably 4-5 yesterday a.m. I didn't test. DH has me chained to the desk. While he was at Costco I sneaked out to do the required daily backwash because of the calcium scale that is releasing from plaster
I can't leave. He can't get any to me for several hours. How much time do I have before algae blooms? It hasn't ever been this low in over a year. UV index will be about 10 in a couple of hours. Temp will approach 100 in next few hours.
TA 48 (odd number because based on testing and then what addition of x amount of baking soda brought it up to)
CYA 60 (or a little less as I've had to do several backwashes, this weekend, due to treating for scale and copper staining.)
I really can't be shocking as the copper stain that has faded some, with one case of Jack's Magenta, treating for about 5 days now, could possibly redeposit on plaster.
My little fountain is running 21/7 and keeping the water temp below 90. The pump is running 21/7 with good water circulation all over the pool.
Give me some good news please.
