Hey everyone. Got my test kit and found that despite Leslie's guidance, I did in fact have chlorine in my pool and that they were full of it. My pool was still cloudy and my free chlorine levels were very low so I decided to try SLAM'ing for the first time.
For my 16000 gallon pool I added 480oz of 10% liquid chlorine to reach a shock level of 24 FC. Waited an hour and it brought my FC level from .2 to 1.7. I added 460oz of chlorine and waited another hour to find my FC levels reach 9. I just added 300 more oz but I'm worried. Is this normal? My back yard has empty gallon jugs scattered everywhere and I'm worried that I might just be wasting money.
This is what I got the last time I tested:
i appreciate any insight you guys can give me. Thanks.
