Good Evening all, I have a question about slamming my hot tub. I recently opened it and balanced the water including TA. I thought everything was fine (water looks good, basic tests are good) until I decided to try out the CC test in my kit. So, CC was at 1.5. I began slamming it yesterday using the pool math numbers to raise FC. My CYA is aprox 25-30 so Im slamming at 14 FC.. Ive been doing this for two days now and CC is still at 1.5 FC did fall to almost zero overnight... weird right? where is the FC going? Im pretty sure the CC built up because my kids are practically using tub as a pool while we wait for our pool to get built. The FC quite likely was dropping to 0 before they would get out and I would raise it and test it at 2-3FC. My bad. If I ever get this CC back under .5 I promise to be diligent and keep FC much higher while kids are using it like a pool
So, what do I do? Keep adding bleach? I feel like the constant testing is costing more than a water replace would. Thanks!!!
TA 70 (originally it was 100 and I brought it down to 50 but now its back to 70)
ph doesn't matter cuz im slamming... pre slamming it was aprrox 7.6-7.8
Borates 50 (not from a test result but from adding borax and MA according to pool math)
FC depends on the moment
CC 1.5 and holding steady for second day of slamming
