We have been experiencing strong, severe storms during the evenings and nights. As a result I have been fishing out the few helicoptor thingy and leaves that get blown in. I'm still trying to regulate my cya due to draining the pool to halfway down the skimmer daily due to all the rain. It should be somewhere between 40-50, but I can't really test it again until the weekend, and guess what more torrential down pours expected for the next 6 days...ughhh!
Because of this I've been trying to keep my chlorine levels at around 7, just to be safe. I have never let it fall below 6 and the water is still very clear and sparkily, but when I tested tonite it read 6 with a cc of 1.5, is this normal after storms? I went ahead and bumped it up to a shock level of 20 (assuming my cya is at 50) and will test again in the morning.
My readings were:
CYA 40-50 (still trying to get it settled)
So, I guess my question is, is it normal to have cc's with a higher chorine reading? Thanks, you all have been great.
