Lately, I've had to keep a small garden hose connected (from the pump discharge out to the street) and running a few times a week just to lower the pool water. The last couple of days the hose has had to run almost all the time the pump is on. Needless to say, I'm making more chemical adjustments than normal. I can use tabs because my CYA doesn't get above 50. I have to keep adding baking soda because my TA keeps dropping below 60. As you would expect, I periodically need to add acid. At last check, CH was still in the 220 to 240 range.
Some pools have float controls to add water. I need one to discharge water
I know that will all change in about 6 weeks and we'll be going the other way once the dry seaon sets in. I need to use up that pool bleach before it goes bad!
