Colorscapes quartz plaster was done one week ago.
pH was off the charts, but I got pH under control today (7.5).... Finally.
I have an SWG, but it won't be used for a month. In the meantime, I am using 3" triclor tabs in each filter. They dissolve super slow (about 3 days). I currently have 2 in each skimmer. Chlorine test is still clear, not even a .5 reading.
QUESTION #1 - I just read the fine print on the Trichlor bucket. It said DO NOT PUT TABS IN SKIMMER, as it will damage equipment (WHAT??) All I've been told and read is to put them in the skimmer. Should I put them in something else? Should I take them out immediately?
QUESTION #2- Can I add bleach at the same time that the Trichlor is in the skimmer (or alternative place)? Will that add to the chlorine level, so we can sanitize and swim? Where do I pour bleach...all around or over returns? Any certain "brand" of bleach?
Thanks so much!
