Rain, rain, go away!

Rain, rain, go away!  We have experienced a high volume of rain water this isdriving everyone crazy here in Florida.  The heat is high and the water table is what does this mean for your swimming pool?  It means your chemicals will dilute (chlorine levels) and you are going to have to add more chlorine...more often to keep up!  As a service person this gets very expensive to maintain.  Backwashing an lowering the water due to the rising water from rain...also washes out chemicals that normally would remain in your pool for a longer period of time.  Calcium, stabilizer, and salt can be backwashed out and need to be replaced more often.  Speaking of salt...the generators cannot keep up with the demand.  You would have to be running your pump 24/7 just to produce the approximate 2 lbs of chlorine it would generate for a 10k just imagine what happens if you have more than 10k pool water.  All pool service people are having a heck of a time trying to keep enough chlorine in your pool on their visits.  If you only have your pool serviced once or twice a month...that is really not enough.  Weekly service is barely taking care of the customer's pools chlorine demand.  So, what can you do you ask?  Basically, add chlorine and check the pH/Total Alkalinity in between visits and add chemicals on your own or change up your service to weekly right now until cooler weather sets in.  You could pay for and ask your service person to leave you extra chlorine.  Just remember that any chlorine you add is going to effect your pH and your total alkalinity.  Those also have an effect on the effectiveness of your chlorine.

My situation is the correct opposite of yours. I would like it rains but it isn't. Such a pity.

Rain the natural phenomena which come and lessen the intensity of the heat. A large number of people enjoy them in a true way.

It is so good to have some rain when it is needed. But if it's too much that is bad.

Waste treatment plants that emit fluids of varying quality derectly into urban water supplies are very dangerous. So, the topic is very controvercial.
