I am slamming right now.
Fc 19 last night at 22:52
PH off the charts 8.2+
Fc 18 at 5:00 this morning
Had to go to work.
Brushed, vacuumed, cleaned filter when I got home.
I remember reading and being told pH will read high at high chlorine concentrations but I believe it is truly high because it was all winter long and since we weren't swimming I decided to concentrate on other things.
I am cleaning the filter daily until all algae is dead and gone.
I added some acid to bring the pH down some. Is it correct that I won't really know about the pH until my slam process is done?
Are there other factors besides low fc that contribute to algae problems?
I have plants on my deck and 4 dogs that lay around the deck most of the day. No they don't get in the pool so they aren't depositing urine which I assume is considered organic material. 3 grandchildren that get out when they have to go they like our ool and don't want any p in it.
Your test kit has been very helpful this winter. Once I get it balanced and kill off the algae I'm hoping it will be as easy to maintain as it was this winter but with the Florida sun and rainfall I'm not so sure.
This is my first pool ever. Thanks for the help this past fall when I acquired it and you all helped me figure out my air leaks.
