Well...here we go yet again- MOTHER TRUCKER (can I say that)
Cool spring, opened pool to perfect water, CYA was 20, (now 50ish) been dosing 2 PPM per day on Stenner and then adding manually as needed for conditions such as massive rains, etc.
I left on Monday AM, with a perfectly clear pool - I returned and JUST tested the water...my FC was O and my CC was O - *** - how is that possible ?
Left on Sunday PM with FC = 7 - dosed 2 PPM per day with Stenner...yet something ate my chlorine like mad in 3 days.
Pool was swam in Monday PM by my 5 year old for a few hours I was told and water was and still is clear with no signs of algae.
If you remember last year the pain I suffered....I am afraid it is starting all over again.
I just added enough bleach to push up to 7 PPM, I will test in an hour.
Last year I SLAMMED for nearly a month straight and then magically it fixed itself....so I hate to start SLAMMing again, till I see if this is a short term issue, since SLAMMing did not fix last year.
ONLY difference it started about a month from now...but honestly we heated the water up earlier this year. Is there any way that heated water (85 degrees) somehow starts a chemical reaction that somehow does something ?
OMG - do you guys all really want to go on this ride again this year ?
