Hello - I'm back again. I seem to be losing a high amount of FC during the day (it's 100 degrees in Dallas) and I know a 3-4ppm loss seems to be acceptable. But I also failing the OCLT test. Last night at 11pm FC was 12.5 this morning at 6:45am it was 10. I guess it is time to slam my pool which I have already started.
Here are my test results from 5:30pm this evening:
PH 7.2 lowered from 7.6 to start the slam process
The pool calculator told me to add 163 oz of 8.25% bleach which I did at 9pm to begin the slam. I have just checked again and now my FC is 16.5. It has actually gone up more than what the calculator advised. I am shocking to 14 with a cya of 35.
I think the problem is I do not know the exact amount of gallons in my pool. My pool is a kidney shape. The measurements are 14.6 wide, 27ft long with a depth of 3'6, 5 and 4ft. I've tried using various methods to try and confirm my gallons are around the 12, mark but it's hard because of the kidney shape and a beach entrance.
There are no signs of algae. Pool is in the sun most of the day. Water is clear. Looks good but I am failing the OCLT test.
I know the slam process which I have started but I was hoping you could check my measurements and see if you agree on approx. 12,000 gallons for my pool. I seem to be over shooting on the bleach?
Thanks for any advice.
