Back story here if needed:
So before I got to read advice from others on waiting to shock my pool (wknd vacation) I added about 1600 ozs of bleach to the pool last night around 9pm in a 2 hour process (cleaning cartridges, skimming, brushing and other things around the yard) in order to bring FC to 30ppm.
The water is noticably clearer today. It has been cloudy with no direct sun this am. I took water to pool shop at noon and got this 0.1 FC result. How can this be? Seems ridiculous. The guy at the store said there is a 10% chance that the test was "blanked out" by a high reading. So WHAT DO I DO? wait it out or add another 12+ gals of bleach? My test kit is in the mail.
Salt is now up to 3100 from 2100 yesterday but SWG has not kicked back in. The guy at the shop said "it definitely should be working by now." He also didn't seem to be a fan of liquid chlorine...
This all might be a little easier if I actually lived on site
