I am wondering how often I should be monitoring my chlorine levels while I wait for CYA to do its thing. I just put it in a newly filled pool yesterday. What level should FC be? I can only find levels with CYA readings.
And also, my TA is high. Should I worry about that right now, or could the CYA help to lower it?
Probably for at least a day I will not be able to run my pump, in case that makes a difference.
Here are test results today, I am mostly looking at how fast the chlorine is going away. It has been sunny most of the day.
9:30 am - TC=5+, more like 7, pH=8.2+, CH = didn't test, TA=120
11:30 pm- FC=1.5, CC=.5, pH=8.2, TA=110
1:30 pm - TC=undetectable, pH=8.2
Do I need to really stock up on chlorine to keep levels high for the next week, and then will I need to shock, so I will need even more before I will be able to be on maintenance dose clorox?
