My CL dropped again to 2.5 overnight, although it did rain last night fairly heavy and it was sunny and warm all day until we returned from running errands so we missed our pool day..boo-hoo. Since it is cloudy and cool here in NY today and chances of us swimming are slim to none, and the remainder of the weekend is iffy too, this is my chance to adjust and add CH to 200 from 110 and add some more CL.
I did add stabilizer yesterday which would add about 15ppm to our pool, to a level somewhere around 50 so I was surprised that my Cl dropped again. I did read under the shocking pool on the pool calculator that when CYA levels are between 30-50, you can lose 1/2 to 2/3 of your CL levels per "sunny" day.
I guess since it will be cloudy, today will be a good test to see if my CL holds fairly steady. We also received our solar blanket yesterday, so we will put that on as well.
Is there any benefit to raising my CL levels above 5-6, say to 8, but not shock levels? I don't want to waste my bleach if there is no benefit. I know if I was to raise the level to 8, the sun would come out full force though and we would end up staring at the pool...lol
Thanks and Happy 4th of July!!!
