As long as the water looks right? Because I have still not found that sweet spot! And I really want to find it!!! When I do my tests the numbers look good. But the water just never really looks crystal clear. I have started to use 6 for FC, but now I'm thinking maybe 7 or even 8. Yesterday I had 10 people in my pool (5 kids 16yrs and younger & 5 adults) all day- and by the end of the day it was slightly green! I have tested the water twice yesterday during use and today twice and the CC is holding at .5 or less. What am I doing wrong? Normally I will have 4 or 5 people a day through the summer.
*my pool is in full sun all day*
my number today at 11:40am
CH 440 -the water here is really hard. I did a partial drain of the pool and use filtered water to replace it but this is where I find myself most of the time-including now.
I am thinking I will shoot for these numbers: Because they balance and I think I might need FC at 7
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
