I live in the San Antonio area of Texas. We had some pretty big storms lately. Yesterday's even closed down part of I-35 (again).
Anyhow, there is one spot on the patio around my pool where the grass is the same level as the patio. With the drenching that happened a few weeks ago and this week, I end up with a cloudy pool because of dirt.
I threw in some bleach yesterday as the pool level just about evened out with the top of the patio surround and I could see the dirt from runoff going into the pool.
Test results this morning:
pH above 8.2
I put in 2 cups, 2oz of Muriatic Acid this morning according to the Pool Math calculations.
I drained the pool so it is now at the correct level.
When this happened about 10 days ago, I just watched my test levels and cleaned my filter to make sure I was giving the pool the best chance it had. I just got back my sparkling clear water yesterday and then we had another deluge.
Is there something else I should be doing (besides landscaping which will happen soon)?
