    Solar cover on or off during shocking?

    I developed some green clouds while the pool was covered for a couple days due to cold temps and rain . I brought the FC up to shock levels and had the filter running on high all day. Should I leave the solar cover off tonight or can I put it on?

    Leave it off. It allows the combined chlorine to dissipate into the air.

    Year 3 BBB -15' x 48" Intex Metal Frame - Was using (2) 1000gph Intex cartridge filters (see Full time pumping Intex). 2012, converted to 1600gph and sand filter+SWG = Sand filter love affair!
    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.
