    Rain

    Hello everyone. My pool is doing well thanks to everyone on the forum. It has rain for 2 days in ny and I have tested the h2o and I notice a spike in the FC and the ph I thought adding more water from the rain will lower the levels

    If you saw a spike in FC, you have a testing error. Rain contains no FC.

    It will also have minimal affect on your pH simply run the pump and blend the water and take a pH reading after the rain stops to double check.

    I am running my pump for 12 hrs on low. When we use the pool we run it on high. U think with the amount and size of the pool running it on low is sufficient amount of time
