Ok, let's start with numbers.
CH 200 (want to raise to around 280 due to fiberglass oxidation, different issue)
Pool does not get extreme sunlight which is why I keep CYA low. (That plus recent studies suggesting CYA is not a great thing) I AVERAGE about a 1.5 to 3.0 FC loss in a 24 hour period, again depending on clouds, sun, etc. Overnight FC loss is always under 0.5. (Sometimes shows a gain which I attribute to my DPD powder)
Most pool use is after lunch into late evening.
Here is my theory and I am looking for feedback and/or suggestions.
If I can swim safely with FC up to shock level (12+/- based on CYA) why not bring to shock level every night? If FC is 11-12ish in early A.M.and 9-10ish by evening, I use aboout the same amount of 12.5 bleach to maintain as if I were keeping at suggested 5-6 FC. I would never risk an algae bloom sneaking up on me, and would be more than safe if I were to be away for a day or two. The only adverse chemical situation I see is the salt level, which I do not have the proper kit to test.
Am I missing something? I'm fairly new to BBB. I have a pool that was covered for over ten years. After 2 years of BBB we finally have crystal water. I mean heads/tails dime in ten foot deep end crystal clear.
Any comments/suggestions are appreciated.
