I started the shocking process on Monday. It was just after a pool party. Here are my numbers.
Added enough bleach to raise me to 24FC
Added bleach to maintain me at 24FC
Added bleach to raise to 24FC
FC: 25 (oops. must have added a smige too much)
My question is: I noticed on Monday there was some water pooling on the backside of our pool. Thought it may be residual from all the splash over during the party. On Tuesday the puddles have gotten worse and I have been loosing an inch(if not more) of water a day. I have had to patch holes in this area of the pool so I recognize the signs of big leaks.
I have had to add water twice during the shocking process to keep the water at a safe level for the return and pump. Could the leaks be causing my number drops? Is it possible to effectively shock the pool with the pool leaking?
