    No Chlorine Loss on a Sunny Day

    11/6 at 5:30 PM I checked the pool and FC was at 7 so I added 21 Oz of 8.25%.. next time I tested was 11/7 at 7:45 PM and FC was at 8... so I didn't add any chlorine last night. Yesterdays was sunny with temperatures of 66/44 high/low. Pool water is about 56. Is it normal to have such little chlorine loss on a sunny day? My CYA is about 50.

    IMO that's normal.

    More so this time of year. It will be more rare in summer when it starts getting hot. Water temp plays a big role, but there is less, and less intense sunlight in winter.

    We have bright sunny days here in the dead of winter and I don't have to add hardly any chlorine, sometimes a week at a time. I reduce my pump runtime down to 4 hrs just to keep skimmers working and my Polaris cleaning any debris off the bottom. I'll soon be disconnecting power to my SWG.

    I am having a similar experience in Central Texas. After a couple of months with Baqaucil and going through a $100 a week I will cherish how long my $2.94 cent bleach lasts.
