CYA: off the Taylor 2006 charts
Water is milky, algae growing on skimmer and light, cannot raise chlorine level. On Wednesday, 15 gallons of 12.5% were added; next morning, FC was .5. Fast forward to yesterday, 12 gallons of 10% added, FC is now 0. One hour after the twelve gallons, FC was only 3.5. With my CYA, I assume I need FC to be 35+ and I also assume there's very little chance of actually getting there.
I'm going to do a 50% water replacement ASAP. Is that the right course of action?
Second question: considering the algae, should I continue to chlorinate and run the pump while I wait for the water trucks (could be Tuesday), or am I just throwing money away?
All help appreciated!
