    Rain Rain Go AWAY!

    So, we have had SO much rain in the last few weeks I am pretty sure I have had a complete water change. In less than a week my CYA has gone from 30 to 0, my chlorine is 0 and I am sure everything else is thrown off too. ( I am only willing to stand in the rain, lightning etc for so long to test). I have let out over 12 inches of rain water in the last 2 days.

    I am guessing by the color of the water( [b]green[/b]) and the chem levels I am going to be starting from scratch. So any hints? I am going to hit it again with a bunch of bleach as soon as the rain stops..if it ever stops....6 1/2 inches so far this morning and it is still raining.
    Hurricane Rita did not kill me, but she killed my pool!

    Here in Houston I've had 28" in the last 13 weeks. Yeah, I keep records of everything that goes into my pool, including rain. Speaking of which, it's raining right now, AGAIN.
