Ok, got my kit and was finally able to do a test. I've been adding Clorox for the past couple of days now at a rate of about 1.5 jugs (182oz jugs) per night. On my 'stick' test (not worth junk) That was showing chlorine in the pool each night at somewhere around a 10. So here's the full set of numbers
FC .4 (this was taken at the very end of the day before adding chlorine for the night)
CYA insane - using the Taylor kit it was covered at about the 1.8ml marking. The stick test was showing it at about 150. I like that the Leslie's guys never bothered to point out to me that this was a problem. I'm well aware of the need to replace the water, my schedule just hasn't allowed. I am set to swap out about 1/3 of the water next Thursday.
So other than the CYA problem, I can see with the CC it still must have a little something in the water. The water IS clear now, and at least I have some sort of PH thanks to no longer pumping in tabs and shock. Other than a shock until the OCLT shows I'm clear and changing out the water for the CYA, is there anything I'm missing.
