I have been using the BBB method for about 2 1/2 months now. I have the pool pretty well balanced (I think). Pool is DE filter, vinyl liner, 15,000 gallons. Pump turns over the pool in about 5 hours so I run it for 5 hours every day.
So, my CC was 2 this morning and the FC was 6. I added 260 ounces of Bleach (6%) and ran the filter for 5 hours. I expected the FC to go up like it did to 13. Was the CC supposed to go up too? I expected it to go down. I don't use anything anymore. I was using 3 inch pucks initially but ditched those.
I just don't want to harm the pool by adding too much. Water clarity looks really good. No visible algae. Did have a little issue with staining but added some stuff to clear it up weeks ago. Now, I am supposed to add 3 ounces every other week to maintain. Sparkle Conquest is the name of the product.
Should I be concerned about the CC number or will it go down?
