The winter winds blew a small amount of pet fecal matter into my pool. I was able to retrieve most of it, bit some disintegrated as it was being removed. I tried to increase my SWG setting, but with water temps below 50 degrees, it is not able to produce any chlorine.
I've read some of the posts regarding this topic, but still could use some immediate advice. Yes, I'm freakin' out.
I have never used bleach because of the SWG. What should my target level of FC be? How much bleach should I use to bring the FC to an appropriate level? Would any other disinfectant be more appropriate? Do I need to remove and clean or replace my cartridge filter medium?
My current readings are as follows:
CYA: 45 (I dumped some water following a recent rainstorm.)
CH: 450 (My water has always tended toward high CH.)
Water temp: 48
