My fault but I always let me chlorine bottom out. It has always been crystal clear so i never gave it a thought. I check every other day and always have to get it back up to 5ppm from 0. Well, today I learned my lesson.
I left my pump off. I usually turn it on about lunch time but today I forgot. Mental note to get a timer. I walked out after work ready for a dip only to find a light cloudiness to the water. Test results show FC 0 as usual. I usually only add enough to get to 5PPM which is 382oz.
Today I added 450oz and will check daily until I see how much it needs daily to maintain the 5ppm rather than every other day. The pump is running and the water already has a clean blue look but the water is still cloudy. Hoping I didn't let it go too long.
I am mulling over the idea of running the CYA up to 50. Thoughts? I know CYA protects chlorine and since my pool is in 100% sunlight it stands to reason it would benefit from the extra. Thoughts?
I am going to take a dip in a few minutes. It has been running for about an hour now so I figure its safe. I am going to run my first OCLT tonight to see how it comes out.
