Yes it wants 2 QTS, I would add 1 QT and recheck PH in 30min (pump running, pour muriatic acid in front of return, water coming into pool) Is your muriatic acid 31%?Well it still says to add 72 ounces of muriatic acid that’s 9 cups dose that sound right to you could my ph be that high?
The FAS-DPD must be done in one setting, with little wait time, after 1min the "re-pinking" is false, not true resultsI bought 6% bleach haven’t put it in yet every time I do a FC test either the sample barely turns pink even after 3 scoops then I had to step away for a minute when I came back it was pink 3 drops turned it white again when I went to do the CC test it was pink again so I guess FC is 1.5 I was going to add about two quarts of bleach. Just checked ph it’s at 7.2 after two quarts
We use the same, but it MUST be fully rinsed and dunked in the pool between chemicals!!! This is for safety!Is it safe to use the same cup I used for MA on my bleach if I rinsed it out or should I use another cup?
Sounds good!After putting in the 2 quarts of MA last night my ph dropped to 7.2 now it’s back 7.8 to 8.0 also added 10 cups of bleach per the calculator going to add another 4 cups muriatic acid tonight because My cya finally dropped from 30 to 40 I don’t want to give the algae a chance to regroup My FC is at 6.5 and CC is .5
Tomorrow I’ll clean the filter cartridge check FC before the sun comes up and see how much bleach I’m going to need too add in to get back to shock level
Is the grass greener? (heehee)Late start today started around 1500 to 1530 hrs; I cleaned up the filter and found out my pool vacuum had been taking periodic trips out of the water over night so I adjusted it to stay in the water and re primed the pump.
Perfect! Keep that PH (safe) low so the chlorine can do it's jobForgot to check ph after but I did a FC test before hand and it read 5 with no CC reading at this time. I added 42 ounces of bleach at 6% to get her back up to 7 and brushed the pool down. In about a half hour I’ll check it again along with the ph to see where I stand.
Water looks a little clearer but to be honest I’m not really sure, I feel there was less algae compared to yesterday so there is progress.
Did you recheck PH 30min later (with pump running?)Half an hour later: FC is now 7.5 still no CC and the PH is between 7.8 8.0 so I dropped in about 4 cups of MA to try and get it back down to 7.2 went ahead and brushed the pool again.
Do we have a pic of your pool/water? If you have algae maintenance FC levels won't knock it down... But you have to get the PH down before you can commence a SLAM Process (assuming you have the right water test kit)Less algae this time and FC is good will do another ph test in about another half hour. Don’t think I need another FC test since I’m over the goal of 7. Pool vacuum has been eating his shoes so I had to remove a couple unfortunately it’s slowing him down considerably I ordered another set.
It's really important no traces are left due to dangerous reactions between the chemicals, hence why the recommendation to use separate measuring devices and the suggestion to dunk in the pool if sharing the same measuring device. (swishing wouldn't hurt either)I don’t rinse it in tap water or anything just in the pool water should I rinse it in the sink then the pool to?
