With our new home and pool we are sure counting the days because it looks so inviting. I have come across a couple of questions if you can help.
With regards to chlorine - Our pool had a steady diet from the previous owners of pucks of Trichlor and our high CYA numbers are proof. We are now using the BBB method and I plan on a partial water change to bring down the CYA to 40-50 in the near pre-season. I read that it is advised to test and add your chlorine in the evening. My pump cycle is off then. Is it okay to add bleach to the pool without the pumps running or should I change the cycle to be running then? I take it you add the bleach after all swimming is done for the day or is it okay to swim right after?
Filter - How long are you running your pumps/filer in the off season and in the season and what daytime schedule are you using? How long do you have your cleaning robot run?
Thanks in advance.
