Okay, we've had our pool open for a full 2 weeks now. Water was good when we opened. (clear, blue, little bit of junk on the bottom, etc)
So, I've been trying to get my CYA up the last few days. I am losing about 2ppm during the day/sunlight, btw.
My numbers are
FC-1.5 (low I need to add some chlorine)
CYA- low, I still see the dot clearly when it's full. I have used 3 pucks in the last few days to try and raise this. I can tell the water is getting a little less clear in the tube but not enough that I can't see the dot like when I did this test last year.
So, keep using the pucks to raise this up?
Also, my TA has gone from 80 to 110 , to 130.....all in 2 weeks time. What's going on there? Do I need to add something or is that okay?
Ph seems to be staying steadily between 7.2 and 7.5.
I like to keep my FC somewhere around 2-4ppm mostly.
Another question, my son and husband said their eyes have been bothering them the last few times in the pool...and I've noticed their eyes are red afterwards. Both times they said this the FC count was around 2ppm. That seems low to me to be causing them problems. Also, to note, both times they said this was 'after' I started using the pucks.....could it be something in them?
OH and the water is nice, clear and blue. Has been since I opened.
