Thread: Gel like substance?

    Gel like substance?

    I have been checking my chemistry at least once/day. I am at about 2.5 weeks since plaster. Still another couple weeks before I dump in salt and put in the salt generator. My chemistry has been at the following levels for the last couple weeks:


    I keep FC between 2 and 4 and have only had CC come up non-zero one time... it was 0.5. Using HTH liquid chlorinator product until my SWG is operational.

    I have been using the chart for salt water pool, but I am guessing since my SWG is not yet operational, I should be using keeping FC a little higher between 4-6?

    My main question is... I have a little bobbing thermometer in the pool... my wife saw something on it and asked me what it was... looked like a few small globs of gel... with brown spots/areas in it... anyone know what this is? Am I doing something wrong with the chemistry?

    I would just spray the thermometer with some bleach to be safe and throw it back in the pool. I'd keep FC in the 4-6 range, especially with the summer heat.
