Okay! so I've been creeping this site for a while now and learning some things :>)). I have had a pool for the better part of 20 years and learn't to test my own water and generally have no problems keeping a very clear pool. I have always used granular shock and stabilized pucks, I do use non-chlorine shock occasionally when I don't want to baby sit chlorine readings. However I don't like shock and could easily be switched to liq. chlor. My problem is what quantities to add?? I know there is different strength's 6-12%, When I opened the pool 2 weeks ago I used shock cause was not sure how much bleach I would add? and now my pump has been toast since Saturday sometime(I was away) and I broadcast some shock by hand this morning but hate the fact that I get residual grains in bottom of pool and a weird white film on top. Soo can I add bleach and how much without ciculation?? mix with a paddle??
