I have had a solar cover since moving in (2 years now) but never used it until this week. So I unfolded it and placed it on the pool on Sunday (June 16) and have left it on ever since (now June 20 - four days total). We've had some nice weather here (LI, NY) and the sun has been hitting it nicely and the temp of the pool has risen noticeably.
That being said, I haven't tested my water since and here's where I'm at:
FC 4.6 8.2!!
CC 0.0 0.2
pH 7.4 7.1
TA 150 140
I'm guessing I shouldn't keep my pool covered for so many days in a row? Could the solar cover real do this?? I'm using the chlorine pucks so I guess that also explains the drop in pH?
