First, test results tf100 kit
cya 62 ish
pool is in 100% full sun all day. water is exceptionally sparkly!
i have noticed over the past few days a 4 to 4.5 ppm cl loss during the day, even after I supplement the swcg with 12% liquid cl. I'm trying to dial in the swcg so thats why I've been adding liquid cl. It runs at 40% now, 24 hrs per day. I have been dosing the pool to get to 6 to 8 ppm after testing in the evening. i have never gotten a test result below 3. We have had a lot of rains and organics falling in the pool, which I've been good not great about removing quickly.
After I shock (verb not noun) should I aim for a higher end of day fc level? Maybe 5 at minimum? 3 just doesnt seem to be cutting it. I do plan on getting CYA up to 70 after I shock to help hold cl. I'm a little hesitant to add borates because I like everything simple, but would borates help for the long term after I get things cleaned up?
I'm planning on shock (process) starting tomorrow.
