Ok I have an HTH 6 way drop test kit.
Im now realizing it test TC (total chlorine) instead of FC like I see all over stuff like the pool calculator and everywhere else I look online.
Are the 2 tests the same or close. I have been keeping my Chlorine at 5ppm TC but now that Ive realized there 2 different tests I wont to make sure thats still a good amout of chlorine. I will just post my full test reults from a day ago and see if that helps with answers.
I know my test kit isnt the best but its what I got, At least it is drops and not the strips everyone hates.
Also rather than starting a new thread I got 1 more question. My pool is a small 15x36 intex metal frame, there are at least 4-6 people in it threw out the day. should I shock it once a week or when do I know I need to shock it?
I do plan on getting this taylor test kit I keep hearing about and A bigger pool when money isnt so tight.
Edit: almost forgot, Is it normal to lose chlorine in 2 days mine went from 5 to .5 but that was after a full day of use too and alot of sun.
