We're trying to get back in the pool after dirty diaper incident Monday evening. Husband immediately added 36oz bleach. The water is crystal clear and has always been. After filling the pool earlier in the year, we added 4 nights of dichlor, per instructions here, and my husband has added some since then, but we never did check CYA. So I checked it and its 0. Have not added dichlor during the shocking process, but definitely will after we're done with all this. The sand pump has been running 24x7 and its been hot and sunny every day. Here's some recent numbers:
Tuesday night at 11:30pm: FC=10, CC=1
We did get some light rain that night. No obvious debris blew into pool.
Wed morning at 5:40 am: FC = 8, CC=.5
I repeated test immediately and got FC=6, CC=1 (??)
Added bleach twice that day to bring it to shock level. I know I probably should have done it more often due to no CYA.
Last addition was about 9pm
Wed night at 11:16 pm: FC = 11, CC=.5
That brings us to this morning!
Thursday at 6am: FC = 9, CC=.5
I repeated test immediately and got FC=7. So I went out and got more water from pool and got FC=6.
The sun is up, but low in the sky, no direct sunlight on the pool.
The fact that I get lower numbers when repeating the test, has me questioning my testing skills??? The water is absolutely sparkling. Could we really need yet another day?
