    Just test and dose like you did before. 3" is a lot, but if the pool is balanced before the rain, if wont take much to rebalance after.

    .i know this will kill my salt and CYA readings.
    Not really. If your pool depth is say around 40" and you displace 3" of it with rain water, those two will dilute by 8%.

    Just test and bring your levels back up to where they were.
