I have new Intex 26' round x 52" above ground pool that holds about 14,500 gallons of water(filled on Monday). I have ordered a Intex sand filter 3000 GPH to replace the stock filter that came with it(now running it). I'm also just about to order the TF-100 test kit.
I have a HTH 6-way test kit now and my numbers are CL 0, BR 0, PH 8+, Total Alkalinity 250, and Total hardness 260.
My questions is how much bleach do I need to put in to start? I'm using chlorinating liquid 10% Sodium Hypochlorite. I have put 3 gallons in so far and still getting clear water after adding 5 drops of oto.
I have read through the pool school and pool math and looked for previous threads.
