I just tested my FC and it was down to 3 from being at FC12 earlier in the afternoon, this is crazy.
My pool gets a lot of sun but hard to believe the sun ate up that much LC in a few hours. I added 163oz of LC and will test again at 7pm. It’s cloudy now and keeping my fingers crossed that it’s doesn’t do another massive drop.
We’ll, I think I finally have it balanced.
FC - 8
CYA up to 45/50 it looks like
PH - 7.4
CC - 0
TA - 120 but I expect it will drop a bit now that I lowered the PH.
And it started raining. Not sure how rain will affect the work I did. have a great 4th of July
As of Saturday I had my CYA at 50. I was gone all day Sunday and knew we were expecting rain. This morning the waterline was just below the coping and must had raised 3”-4” due to the rain. I measured my levels again and my CYA dropped back down to 35 which is a big drop in my opinion. I’ve added more stabilizer to bring it back up to 50. It’s now pouring again so, do I have to recheck my CYA after each rain fall. Hard to believe the rain water caused such a drop in cya.
my PH also went from 7.4 to 7.8
FC was at 6 which is good but I added about 50oz of LC to raise it to 8.
Good Morning. I’ve been managing to maintain a good FC a level since slamming a couple weeks ago, but now I can’t seem to stabilize the PH. It rises every almost daily to above 8 and I am adding MA every few day. We’re not using the pool either due to the rain
this morning my numbers
PH 8 dark pink
I read that a good PH is 50-60 in order to keep PH steady in the 7’s. should I lower my TA to these levels? I can turn the jets up to create the bubbles. How long would it take to lower TA to the right level?
How long it takes depends on how diligent you are at adding acid, aerating, etc.
Or you can just keep lowering your pH everytime it gets to 8 or above. Not a big deal as you are testing and adding liquid chlorine every day.
