I'm trying to slam our pool to take out some algae that just started. Having trouble using the pool math calculator to figure out how much bleach/liquid chlorine to add...
We're using liquid chlorine 2.5 gallon jug that's 10.5% active chlorine. What number to put in next to weight/trade box that you can't type in?? Is that where the percentage of bleach goes? Also, there isn't an option in the drop down jug size for the 2.5 gallon jug we have? Is this a problem?
Test results are as follows for our SWG pool:
CYA - 53
FC - 1
PH - about 7.6 - we dosed the pool to bring this level close to 7.2. Will probably be slightly above since we ran out of acid (but it will definitely be below 7.5)
Just trying to figure out how much chlorine to add - thanks!

BTW, algae is visible - looks light yellow-brown colored. We haven't been keeping a good eye on the SWG and how it's doing apparently, and trying to run it shorter amounts per day. It's coating the sides and part of the bottom of the pool. Nothing floating that I can see - so probably not too serious...yet! I'd like to start soon though on the slam.
