We just returned from vacation yesterday. Did a quick CL check last night, we did have some left when arriving home, but not much. I added 2-174oz jugs of bleach last night to bump it back up. Our Ph was around 7.7 last night. I should have added more CYA last night b/c now I need to adjust a few more things today instead.
So I just did a full set of tests
CYA....did not measure...I know we have to add more today. We got LOTS of rain while we were gone and it was only around 30-35 b/f we left.
The one thing I noticed arriving home last night is when I was mixing the bleach in the water, the water was very foamy. Could have been related to all the sand left in the pool by the landscaper, maybe CH levels, although they have been pretty consistent all summer at 100-110...but maybe something else?
So DH is traveling this coming week and I really want to get more CH in the pool. I would like to do that one first since we do want to predissolve it in a bucket. Too messy for me to do by myself.
Then the CH bucket says you cannot add acid until 24 hours later though. Is it ok for the pH to remain that high for one day or can I add it late tonight instead? Any reason the CH bucket says not to add MA for 24hours?
Hopefully we will have our new SWG installed and operating this week too so I need get the #'s tweaked.
