    iam in process of doing my pool also I have my fc up to 12 now will check in morning, Question is I purchased the walmart great value bleach, it has a green tint to it if you put it in a white cup. were clorox has a clear look. My pool was starting to get clear until i add this patch of bleach, will this go away and clear up or do I need to get some clear bleach. I have sand to change filter sand but dont think Iam quite there yet .

    Great Value bleach is the only brand of bleach I used in my conversion because it was cheaper. It will clear up.

    ok thanks, I will keep pouring in bleach. today I didnt have the big gain in pump pressure this morning. Before today it always went up about 5-8 over night. I vac it out and scrubbed walls. Do you all think its time to change filter sand? I stil lost almost all chrotine reading overnight.

    You should not replace the filter sand until the overnight FC loss is 1.0 or lower.

    ok thanks, I have noticed that now when I add bleach it doesn't seem to turn green color like first few times. The pool was actually clear today after sun came up.
