    What is a normal clorine use

    Having moved completely to the BBB maintenance method, what would be a normal Chorine use of my pool. I figured out I should add approximately 3 cups a day of 12% bleach, adding 2ppm of FC to my pool.
    FC : 4
    TA : 65
    CYA : 45
    PH : 7.6
    10,000 Glns plaster pool
    Temperature : 80 degrees , hot and sunny every day.

    2ppm loss per day would be considered within norm, given your CYA level. That number will vary +/- 2ppm depending on length of sunlight exposure and bather load per day....etc

    3-4 ppm per day for me in the heat of the summer with all day full sun exposure.
