    Its in the mid 90's today!!!

    Hey all,
    Its in the mid 90's today, and I am curious while in the clean up stage how much will this blistering heat take from my Chlorine reading , compared to a normal day when the water is crystal clear???

    You will certainly use more chlorine than usual, but it might only be a little bit more. Chlorine usage goes up with the water temperature, and water temperature rises more slowly than air temperature.

    Are you using stabilizer (trichlor / dichlor)?

    Is the pool shaded or in direct sunlight?

    What is the status of your "clean up stage"? Are you dealing with a swamp or just normal spring opening?

    We hit 97 today and my water temp is still only 81 !!!

    my chlorine consumption is getting higher with the higher temps. I was getting about 8-10 PPM with my SWG set at 10% running 24 hrs. I tested yesterday and I'm now at a comfortable 4.5 ppm

    I wish it was the mid 90's here it hit 103º yesterday. Here's hoping it's only the mid 90's today!
