I've been an online lurker til now, this site has saved my sanity several times this summer. I attempted to swim Monday night, the chlorine odor is unbearable. I used a few chlorine pucks a few weeks ago until I realized my CYA was rising. I did add 2 bags of shock Monday night, other than night I use nothing but bleach.
FC 10+ almost red with drops
PH 8.4+ almost pink n strips
Been near 100 degree almost a week, pool gets 6-7 hrs of direct sun, temp. is 86. I drained it several inches tonight and refilled, no change.
