Hi everyone. My pool has never looked better since my conversion, but I seem to be using an awful lot of bleach to keep my levels up. I did the overnight test and everything was fine, but seem to lose about 4 ppm's during the day when it's sunny. This is requiring me to use about 3 quarts of bleach a night to keep at recommended levels.
Just for fun I tested yesterday in the morning. It was cloudy all day and I tested again in the evening, only lost 2 ppm's. FC level was 6, bumped it up to nine overnite.
Tested again this morning, was still at 9. Was sunny all day, just tested again for the evening and sure enough back down to 5, added another 3 quarts to allow for burnoff tomorrow.
Does this seem like a lot of bleach or is this normal? I've read where some only have to add a cup or two a night and I'm having to add quarts. Going through a few gallons a week at this rate.
My numbers are:
FC 9 (can almost garauntee it will be back to 5 by tomorrow evening)
Any recommendations will be greatly appriciated. Thanks!
