    3 days of kids - water levels unbalanced

    Every time a kid gets in I cringe because I know my chlorine is working overtime. But, its what its for right? Ok, so here are my current readings

    FC .5
    CC 0
    pH 7.8
    TA 130
    CH 130
    CYA tubes fills up, black dot still visible. Guessing 10 as it is a little cloudy.

    I put 380oz of bleach in yesterday but we got alot of rain last night and did alot of swimming. So, add more chlorine.

    So, after 2 months my CYA is already gone? Is that normal? t was 40ppm a few weeks ago.

    My plan right now is to add enough bleach to get to 10ppm (400oz) since I have had lots of little swimmers over the past 3 days. Hopefully it will balance out by tomorrow and settle around 5 where I normally keep it. I am also planning on adding 7.5lbs of stabilizer to get to 50ppm.

    That sound about right?

    Also, we have a huge storm coming tonight. It will over fill the pool. It did last night as well. Should I wait till tomorrow to dump the chemicals in and retest?

    Might as well wait. I would put the CYA in ASAP tomorrow AM and then start the FC right behind it.

    Its done. New reading coming tomorrow. Its kinda cloudy right now but I brought the FC up to 12ppm. Will give it an OCLT to see if I have underlying issues.
