I added enough stabilizer to reach 40ppm.
If you added enough stabilizer to get to 40 ppm, why is your CYA test 60 ppm?CYA = 60
you are correct unless my calculations with stabilizer was wrong or my test is not right . i will do another CYA test in a bit . this is second time i am doing the CYA test so just little confuse that black dot suppose to completely disappear ? i can try doing the overnight chlorine test but starting tonight we are suppose to get heavy rain for two days maybe i'll wait for 2 decent days for the overnight test.
ok did test again.
Perfect i'll test FC again in morning . also does it matter pump wont be running now till about 8am . ofcourse swg is also off . i plan of check around 7am.Round up your CYA result so 50 ppm.
Unless you have a tropical storm coming through rain has little effect on water chemistry.
ok just tested and FC stayed the same to 8. Pump had been running for about 30min without swg before i tested. I will try to keep the FC between 8 - 10 and control the swg at least for few more weeks. still don't understand why water is slightly cloudy?The pump should be running for at least 30 minutes prior to getting your pool water sample for testing. Or you can brush the pool vigorously.
there has been patio work going on and i have been getting some dirt here and there. but between the robot and running the pump and me brushing its been mostly clear. i'll inspect all those areas.Water should not be cloudy. Hold the FC level and see if it clears. Are you getting any debris on the bottom of the pool? Be sure to check light niche, skimmer throats, etc for algae.
