I am currently trying to clean my pool (again) due to my sand filter cracking and it not being replaced right away. I am following the shocking process, but I can't help but wonder something. My shock level is 15 and I can't help but wonder what would be wrong with just dumping twice the amount needed to get results faster. Everything I have read on this forum tells me not to do that, but I would like to understand the "why". It is so tempting to dump more so I don't have to keep checking every hour, but I know there is a reason why that is not a good idea.
I would greatly appreciate it if someone can explain this to me.
