I am really having a hard time getting a free chlorine reading in my pool. I went to the pool store today and had them test my water. These are my results....
Total Chlorine 9
Free Chlorine 0
Tot Alkalinity 193
Adj. Total Alk 161
Total Hardness 135
My pool is a fiberglass pool... 19600 gallons of water....1.5 horsepower Hayward pump
I think I have totally screwed up!!!
The pool store told me to add 80 one pound bags of shock to the pool to get a free chlorine reading. I was shocked. I decided to try 6% Clorox bleach. I added eleven 182 fl oz bottles to the pool. Which would be a total of 2002 fl oz. Now when I use your calculator if I am reading it correctly... it is saying to add 24,800 fl oz???? That would be 136 ... bottles of (182 oz) of clorox. What am I doing wrong. I am so frustrated with this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
