    How much bleach per day

    I know that all pools are different and the chlorine levels will change.
    But on an average how much bleach is everyone adding per day throughout the swimming season?

    The "average" pool uses about 2 ppm of chlorine per day.

    I use about 4 cups every other day in the dead of summer and with moderate bather loads.
