We have had a pool for years and have always just used pool store chemicals. This year I have started to use some of the BBB methods and I'm wondering about day to day chlorine.
I have an inline tablet feeder and normally use 3" tablets in it. ($90 for a 25# bucket!) Can someone explain what is required on a day to day basis to maintain chlorine using bleach?
I opened the pool this past monday to a green monster, using a few bottles of bleach and a few boxes of borax, the water was pretty clear by wednesday night! Just a slight bit of cloudyness left.
Using test strips (I know, I just ordered a K2006 kit a few minutes ago!) I had the following reading this morning, but they seem to fluctuate to much to put any faith in them:
pH = 6.4
FC = 2
TA = 100
