This is a cross post. I've had a thread running in Chemistry 201 regarding our addition of an SWG, but now we are facing a high FC, and I mostly wanted to rant, I confess, so I am posting the body of my recent post to the other thread.
>>>Here it is, a day later (Friday June 12th), 8PM, and FC is riding at 19.5.
Early this morning, around 8AM, we realized that this is all out of control on the high side, and we turned our SWG down to 1% and then 0%, so the new machine hasn't worked all daytime.
I am going to try to post a cross thread somewhere else, mostly just to rant. I am still so angry that one of the pool dudes decided (yesterday after the SWG installation) to set our machine on Boost and shock our pool (with packets of god-knows-what) without even talking to us or asking us or, OMG doing a darned test himself. This really stinks now that I think about it, but I don't think it will do any good to yell at this new company who we will be looking to for pool care.
I know that patience is often advocated here, but we both need to leave on business trips on Monday morning, and we had hoped to have this pool stabilized and happy by now. What a disappointment. We can't be back for 7 days; we're thinking we're going to have to just ride high, and deal with those consequences later.
Mind you, we can't even test for our other tests because the FC is so high, it's killing our TA and CH tests.
Thanks for listening. I apologize; it's been a long day of hoping the FC would drop.
