Our new plaster pool is puzzling the **** out of me.....
Water tests as of Sunday:
FC - 1.5
pH - 7.2
TA - Was at 40, so I added some baking soda to bring it up per the calculator. I haven't retested this yet.
CYA - 80
We are using a rainbow feeder for now. I am running our pump from about 8PM till 6AM.
I usually test the water in the morning, sometimes in the evening.
It has been RIDICULOUSLY hot and dry....temps in the 100's with no rainfall to speak of.
Water temp as of last night was right about 93 (yuck).
I tested the water yesterday evening, and the FC was down to 0 (ph @ 7.2). I turned the Rainbow up a notch from 3 to 4, and dropped a couple of pucks in the skimmers and overnight the FC shot up to 4. I took one of the two pucks out of the skimmer this morning.
1) Do I/should I continue to leave a puck in the skimmer? 1 or two?
2) Should I run a pump turnover during the day?
We have no issues with algae or water clarity, the pool looks great, but these numbers are a little worrisome.
