I did an overnight chlorine test with dpd
LAst night 5.5
This morning (2 hrs after sun up, slept in) 5.0
Last night I thought I saw a tinge of pink and added another drop to get to 5.5, so there may be user error
PH 7.5 (this has been stable for weeks +-1)
CH 230 It turned light blue at 23 drops, I added several more and it still stayed the same. So I backed it up to 230
CYA 95 or so
Now For CYA, I have been draining and adding water it has come down. But I have a question for non chlorine shock I have Fresh N Clear on hand, have not used it, does it raise CYA or just dichlor?
One more thing according to pool calculator 6% bleach raises salt I think it told me 1.7. Is this going to be a problem if I keep doing BBB or will the replenishing of water for splashouts compensate for this. I am running Chlorine/Bleach. Sholuld I buy Salt Strips.
BTW, last night wife was saying how good the pool felt, she said she did not have that slimy feeling in her hair, umm slimy water, I would not even get in.
