After reading the Pool School information and playing with the pool math calculator I determined that my new 5300ish gal Intex metal-frame pool needed about a quart of bleach to bring the FC from 0 (fresh fill) to 4. My husband ended up adding a whole bottle of bleach (121 oz) to the pool over the course of the day and the test strips (brand new) still register at "0" FC. We have even tried a different box of test strips (but all the other chemistries are reading so I'm sure it is not that).
Am I missing a step here? We used shock last summer on our 1700 gal Intex but we would really like to use the TFP method if possible for our new pool.
