I do my best to empty my two skimmer baskets and the leaf grabber in my vacuum hose line but occasionally forget for a couple days. I wonder about the degree to which these areas of my pool's filtration cycle impact the chemical balance of my pool.
My pool is sparkling clear with the only issue some frustrating overnight FC loss and high PH I can't seem to lower. I've been dumping a 1 gallon jug of 10% Hasa liquid chlorine and some 31% Hasa muriatic acid every other night with 4 trichlor pucks in floaters. Pool is under no shade and the temperature here in AZ is averaging 104 degrees. No other organic matter is in the pool, aside from a plastic floating lounge chair we purchased 2 weeks ago and my golden retriever's occasional dip into the second step/lounge area.
Appreciate the feedback!
