Ive read a lot of posts on here and the ABC's and I just cant get my brain to wrap around it. LOL Went to the pool store and here is what they said:
They said to add 6lb of Alkalinity Icreaser (Yeah baking soda) and then to add 2 lb of shock.
This just doesnt seem like that much chlorine to add with my levels being so low. They also said dont worry about the cya being 8 as it will go up with tabs. Should I tell them I am starting BBB? LOL What does a pond of shock translate to bleach? (one of the main things I dont get) is 1lb= to 1gal? The more I think about it the more confused I am getting, but I am not ready to give up yet. Thanks for any help!
Also can you recycle bleach containers or are they trash?
