Is it normal to be chasing chlorine every day? Yesterday i checked chlorine levels after topping off the pool level, first with hth test strips and followup with hth test kit (water sample,,,add drops, etc) It tested out at 1.0 on the kit and 1 on the test strips. Per the Pool Math table, I added 44 oz of clorox (8200 gal above ground pool) tested again and it tested at 4.0 ppm TC. This morning with hth strips 1 FC. So i tested it with the new, first time, Taylor 2006.... It tested at 1.0 ppm FC and 1.6 CC. So I added once again 36 oz of clorox.
