    Can I do an ascorbic acid treatment in the rain?

    I started a stain treatment yesterday with 2lbs of ascorbic acid, 1 qt of algecide and 1 qt of Jacks Pink Stuff. However, the FC was at 2.5 (I was impatient) and I still have stains even though I think they are lighter. Now, it's 8:15 pm and raining. However, my FC is 0, PH is 7.2, ALK is 70. I have 1lb of ascorbic acid and 2 qts of the Pink Stuff left. Should I try now? It seems my numbers are perfect but I'm not sure if the rain will make a difference. Or should I just go put a jug of bleach in for now. Any one? Thanks.

    You can go ahead and do it now. The rain won't cause any problems except for you getting wet while you are working on the pool.
