I am trying to get an understanding on how much bleach I will be using on a regular basis. I have been treating the pool with bleach for four days now. Daily I have had to add between 100 - 130 oz of bleach to maintain an FC of 10 due to a CYA of over 100. So here are my questions.
1. I assume that I will be able to determine an amount of bleach that I typically add daily to maintain my FC in the proper range. Basically after a week or two if I am typically adding 120 oz daily I should be able to learn that without testing daily I can just add 120 oz and be done.
2. I think I understand that with a CYA over 100 it uses the bleach faster than if the CYA was lower in the desired levels. So does this mean with an FC of 10 and a CYA over 100 I will be using substantially more bleach then I would be if the CYA was lower and therefore being able to lower the FC?
3. If my understanding of question 2 is correct how much bleach can I expect to use once I get my water to the desired CYA?
I guess my main reasoning for these questions is because in my initial thoughts I didn't realize I would be adding over a gallon of bleach daily. If I bought bleach weekly I would have to keep on hand a minimum of 7 gallons of bleach which could be a pain to store. How much do you guys typically have at any one time?
I hope all of this makes sense. Woke up in the middle of the night pondering these things and wanted to get them written down so I didn't forget.
