Well we got back from the hospital and are now proud parents of a baby girl!!!
Needless to say the pool got neglected again for a few days there, but DH is back on top of it. We've been vacuuming up the crud on waste and have atemporary sand filter plugging away as it was too much for the DE filter with how dirty it was. The pool is starting to look great. The water is clear and you can see the bottom clearly even in the deep end. No more frogs!
There are some stains on the bottom, but the debris is all out.
We just reran the tests and got the following results. Sorry I know we should be spending more time in the pool school, but with a brand new baby we're having trouble dedicating the time.
If anyone can help us to understand these levels until we get more of a gripon what everything means, that would be great.
We added a gallon a day of liquid Sodium Hypochlorite for the past 6 days and we've added 2 lbs of powder Calcium Hypochlorite yesterday.
FC: 3 ppm
CC: 0.5 ppm
TC: 3.5 ppm
We measured the chlorine yesterday and it was definitely higher, so we've lost a fair amountover night, but it did rain last night and we vacuumed yesterday and today so are adding a lot of fresh water to keep water levels high, so maybe that's why?
DH is just adding a gallon of liquid Hypochlorite now and he's done with vacuuming, so maybe it will settle back down (we were maintaining steady chlorine levels before we went into the hospital).
What about that CYA reading? That's not good right?
