Hey all starting back up again and had some quick questions. Readings done last night and tested again this am for FC loss.
FC = 12.5 (6:30pm) and 6 (8:30 am)
CC = 1
TA = 100
CH = 120
CYA = 0
Pool calculator requests the addition of:
1 gallon 1 quart of liquid bleach to bring shock level back up
3 cups muriatic acid
23lbs of Calcium Chloride
6 lbs of CYA
I know to add acid first wait/then chlorine and to sock the CYA by a return. However, adding 23lbs of Calcium Chloride not only seems excessive I don't know how to add it or when in the process should it be added. Please help.
Pool water was green, is now cloudy and clearing daily/hourly. Shock started last night and will continue until overnight loss test equals less that -1 ppm FC and .5 CC.
I must say that after last year and learning all that I did from you fine folks getting up and running has been so much easier. Unfortunately it was a very warm winter and I was out of town most of the season and could not maintain FC/pH levels.
Thanks for your help,
