Ok, I know everyone says if your pool is balanced, you don't smell like chlorine, your skin doesn't itch and your suits don't bleach out.
Here are my results after a "swim party" yesterday...
Ph 7.4 ish
Borates between 30 and 50
I know the chlorine had been sitting around 11 which given my cya is not too bad. Is that what caused our suits to bleach out? The water boatmen were dying on impact to the water, but due to the heat I added water (which is why my fc is lower), now I have boatmen enjoying my pool again. I thought maybe letting the fc down a little would be ok.
Is keeping the fc up the reason our suits bleached out? Is there bodily harm to keeping the fc high? I rather buy new swimsuits than share my pool with bugs. The kids won't swim if the boatmen are alive.
