I have sucessfully done my absorbic acid treatment for stain removal. Since then we have had several inches of rain that have clouded the water to an extreme. I am past my 48 hr waiting period for adding bleach, the alk and ph are doing pretty good and I have not <yet> had to make any adjustment (ph was 7.6 prior to treatment...now holding around 7.2). I added a gallon of bleach to the pool eariler today to assist with chlorine. After several hours still measures close to zero (with some additional rain). I would like some idea of how often I can add bleach (in small amounts)? I know the acid is going to eat it up for sometime, I just want to get back to clear water and then manage with small amounts of cholrine for a few weeks till higher dosing (shock). Can I add a gallon or so every 4-6 hours or 3 times a day?
Its a 30,000 gal vinyl pool with a CYA of 35 (ergo the 1 gal of bleach...I didn't want to go to quickly).
Any guidance would be helpful.. Thanks
