    No free chlorine

    We opened our pool. We used Algecide and shocked it twice in the last few days but cannot get an free chlorine to register on our test strips. Should I be checking the cya? Thanks for any help.

    Guess strips are not helping you, we have a couple test kits that are great and will help you with taking care of your frien/pool

    Check out my links below under test kits, once you order one add 1/2 gallon bleach from walmart a day and brush your pool until your kit arrives...

    Welcome to the forum.

    Algaecide wastes your money. We don't shock a pool. We SLAM a pool. If you decide to read further, you will find the TFP method is all about precision testing, precision dosing and a result of crystal clear water all summer.

    If you take the plunge with us, your eyes will be opened wide and your pool will never look the same.

    Please read "The ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry" up in Pool School

    Welcome to TFP!

    +1 to ordering a TF100 from and taking charge of your pool. I've been buying my test kit there for 4 years now and maintaining my pool TFPC style.

    CYA should be 30 and FC should be at target for your CYA, Chlorine CYA Chart

    If there is algae in the pool then you will need to follow this process to kill it, Pool School - SLAM - Shock Level And Maintain
