So, another day another lesson learned.
I was going through the pool chemicals that my pool installer left and discovered a quart of Poly 60. So, upon reading the instructions I dosed the pool with the initial/startup dosage on the high side. Noting it is a good algae preventer and mild clarifier, and it didn't cost me any money, I figured what the heck.
So I dosed my pool last night w/ almost a quart of the stuff, let the filter run for two hours, and went out for Happy Hour. I added it by turning off my main drain and one skimmer, setting the pump to recirculate, and than poured the poly into the one functioning skimmer. I left the pump this way for about 5 minutes to make sure it all got shot around the pool w/ my 10 jets. I then put everything else back to normal.
This morning I discovered I have no Chlorine in the pool.
So, researching this on the forum I have now learned that large quantities of Poly 60 will consume (or combine?) with chlorine and thus require a chlorine infusion. Good thing I got up early this morning. I immediately turned the pump/filter on and set my SWG to Super Chlorinate.
Any idea how long I have to run this way to get over the Poly 60 consumption curve so that my chlorine sticks around?
Thanks in advance.
