Wondering if someone can assist me with some questions about Chlorine.
Home Depot is selling chlorine under the HDX brand which is KemKlor 10%. I had someone do my pool service during start up and left a bottle of hypochlorite solution 12% which I am guessing is 2% better than the Home Depot Brand.
If I am a DIY type of guy, is there any negative uses to using the HDX 10% vs a professional pool person who can use 12%?

I also am using a Taylor complete High kit and AquaCheck 7 test strips
Just to verify my test I have also gone to Leslie Pools and had them test my water to just make sure I am ok. Probably overkill with extra testing.
The only thing Leslie's does additional is Phosphorus testing. I keep the pool clean very few leaves during the winter but my POS level was 2000 or greater. I have been using Phos Free from Natural Chemistry and got those #s under 300.
Keep with the PhosFree during the summer or use an algaecide or both?
my last test from Leslie's was
FAC - 4
TAC - 4
CH - 230
CYA - 50
TA - 80
PH - 7.6
COPPER - 0
IRON - 0
TSD - 2000
1 question when using the poolmath it is asking for type of cholorine. trichlor,dichlor, cal-hypo 48%. . . . what one do I select?
Thanks for your help.
