Is there a general time frame when water holds chlorine after ascorbic acid treatment? Also, my pH is continually rising. (assuming d/t all the bleach I'm adding).
I'm going on 3 weeks post treatment and I STILL have bleach being consumed very quickly in my pool. I generally add bleach every other day. Today I added in the morning and evening.
This mornings numbers at 8:30am: (I added 1.5 lg jugs of bleach around noon day before- raised 5-6 ppm).
Water is crystal clear.
pH 7.6 (hardly moved after adding 4 c. muriatic acid - Home Depot brand, not very concentrated I think).
To prevent algae, I'm running pump/filter 24/7 and used whole bottle of polyquat before AA tx, and am adding about 10 cc a week now. So far, so good.
Just suprised that chlorine isn't holding.
