I'm trying to get a handle on the best 3rd party bleach to buy and use for the pool.. as well as CYA.
It seems from Pool School, my bags of shock arent really needed if i use 6-8% bleach as the alternative.
The pool is the 18x52 size pool, roughly 45-46.5" water with 6981 gallons + 2800~ gal/hr sand pump and the intex 7000 series salt water generator.
I'm using the TF100 kit + the Taylor test for salt.
Trying to get my FC stabilized since after opening the pool, i had a period where i had no chlorine in it, then used regular shock to bring it up and get rid of slime which happened in about 2 days time.. bringing it up so the SWG can keep up.
I"ve used the calculator, i can see how many ounces to use and all for each.
I bought the white pellet form of CYA in this Clorox brand.. spread around the pool perimeter, but its stubborn to dissolve (any worries about swimming with it along the edges, should i have put in the wall skimmer instead or is this bad for intex stuff?
Is standard Dollar General type generic clorox bleach ok to use, or do i have to watch out if it contains calcium (i havent tested the calcium yet to see how hard the water is). I'm assuming the bottle says if its 6% or 8% etc..
I think i also read about tying a sock to the ladder.. perhaps i should have done this with the CYA pellets instead.
Thanks for any brand suggestions here and ways to apply it.
