This is my first season doing BBB and I am going through waaay more clorox than I thought. I am averaging at least 2-3 points of FC a day trying to hold a 5FC based off my CYA level (30 with a 3-5FC range).
I realize the CYA/FC numbers are based off experience, theory, and probably the worst case scenario should you be trying to maintain your pool in a texas or tampa area.
I live in the midwest and my pool temp rarely reaches 90 neither does the outside temps. I also have a peristaltic setup so I get nightly doses of chlorine to keep things level. Is there any guesstimates with someone that can hold a low pretty precisely and not have intense sun what the potential CYA/FC multiplier could be?
I was wondering for my 30 CYA if I couldnt get away with a night time (before adding chlorine) level of 1. I tried this for a one week period and no algae nor did the CC go above 0.5. Am I gambling asking for algae in this range with my temp and daily low levels?
