I was hoping to glean enough information from posts from other users to help myself without bothering any of you with my question, but I needed to clarify something. My problem is high CH. Did I read correctly that shocking will lower CH?
I've had a low salt reading on my SWG even though salt level is fine. Intex has finally helped me there and it is running well. FC number is a little higher than I usually keep it, but with no SWG for a couple of weeks I've been adding liquid chlorine and things have not been as consistent.
I did some testing today with the following results:
I have recently drained a significant amount of water and added hose water back due to the SWG malfunction. I believed it at first and added too much salt according to the salt strips that finally arrived. I am assuming that is why the CH is so high. How do I lower this?
I decided not to close my pool, so I will just be sure that my pump is running from about 2AM to 6 AM daily in the event of a freeze - which really only happens maybe once or twice in our mild winters. Does that sound reasonable?
