Thread: Do I need to shock?

    Do I need to shock?

    I use a TF-100 when testing, and all numbers are good... last test results are below:
    PH 7.4
    TA 80
    CH 260
    FC 2.0
    CC 0
    TC 2.0
    CYA 20

    Pool water is crystal clear, everything looks good. Found a mouse in one of the skimmer baskets. My question is this... Do I need to shock as a result, or if all the test results are ok then am I ok? Would like to be able to swim tomorrow as it's supposed to be a beautiful weekend.

    I don't know the answer but if I shocked every time I pulled out a salamander or frog I'd have to leave it at shock level all the time!

    Well FC is a little low anyway. You should at least bump it up a bit extra due to the animal. Do an OCLT to see if your water is clean.

    Also raising the CYA may allow you to use less FC everyday.

    I'd bump it up to shock level and then just let it drift down to normal from there.
