    Intex a little unlevel?

    A couple of questions I have here and would greatly appreciate some feedback. My intex pool I installed is 2" at the most in level on one side. Is this a problem? Also we just had a heavy rain. Will that raise or lower my ph and chlorine? My guess it will dilute the FC but Im not sure.

    2" is the absolute "Keep a REALLY close eye on that puppy" max I would even consider allowing. 1" is better, 1/2" is more like it.

    Also we just had a heavy rain. Will that raise or lower my ph
    No way to know without knowing your current pH. It will, in all likelihood, move your current pH (whatever that is) closer to 7. By how much depends on how much rain, and the size of your pool.

    and chlorine?
    Lower it. By how much depends again on rain amount and pool capacity.

    Remember, the Shock Process should be followed until : 1. CC is less than 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
