Hey guys. I'm having a chlorine issue with my pool and I hope it's not algae starting to grow. My pool looks great but I'm having trouble keeping it at my target level of 5ppm. My level was at 5ppm last night and by 11am today it was down to 1ppm. Added bleach to get the level back to 5ppm and by 8pm it was down to 2.5ppm. Is this normal? Is it normal to add a full 96oz jug of bleach every day? Will doing a SLAM help? Here are my current numbers:
I am currently using bleach but I did have a tri-chlore floater in there for about 2 weeks while I was on vacation. I also added about 60oz of muriatic acid today to bring the pH down from 8.0 to 7.4. I'm trying to get my TA down to about 100.
