So during the summer, when my salt cell was at 60% and a 12 hour run time, I was adding ~4ppm per day. Chlorine stayed pretty consistent, so drop was about 4ppm per day.
In this season, with reduced sunlight, I'm seeing about 1.5 to 2 ppm loss per day. CYA is at 70.
So that equates to approx. 50 ounces of bleach per day?
Is that a reasonable number / expectation?
Just asking because this is the first winter I'm caring for the pool myself, rather than outsourcing it.
Have adjusted to keep pH at 7.8, TA at 70, CH at 310, CYA at 70.
CC gets to be 0.5 when significant wind or rain comes in during the day/night and then goes back to 0 the next day.
Using generous rounding, 50 ounces equates to 3 gallons of bleach per week, so approx. $9.
So assuming 27 weeks between now and being able to kick the salt cell back in, that's approx. 81 gallons of bleach and $243.
Does this all sound reasonable, for those that have been doing the winter care routine for a while?
Will have to check Sam's club and see if Clorox is cheaper there in a larger case than it is at HEB.
Should I be adding this on a daily basis? Or can I add double the amount, say every 2 days, and let it come back down over a longer timeframe?
