1. whats the limit

I am going to attempt to SC my pool with suspiciously high cya leve and i can't find any literature yet as to how much pool shock bleach to add to a pool safely at one time .. so i don't gove over that limit at one time

2. Re: whats the limit

You need to know how high the CYA level is, and most tests only read up to 100 ppm. It is possible to have CYA at 200 or more. While it is possible to shock and clear a pool with very high CYA, the cost to do so would be high. You need to find out how high your CYA level is so you will know how much bleach to use to reach shock level, and how much bleach would be too much.

Use a mixture of 1 cup pool water and 1 cup tap water and test the CYA level. Double the result. If your results over 70 ppm you should partially drain and refill the pool to bring the CYA level down.

What exactly does this mean? I'm not quite understanding.

It would be a lot easier for us to help you if you kept things together in one topic. There is a lot of context that is missing from this post that is central to figuring out the answer.

basiccally what im asking is how much liquid chlorine is the safe limit at one time per like .. 10000 gallons .. assuming you have a high cya level and requires alot of chlorine .. do i have to space the dosages apart a given time frame or is it sage to add the whole suggested amount at one time?

like theres a limit to how much soda ash and baking soda you can att per volume at one time .. does liquid chlorine have a limited dosage amount as well?

Add whatever the PC suggests all at once in a steady stream.

Yes, there are limits, but they are not fixed limits. It all depends on your current numbers. Saying "a high CYA level" doesn't tell us anything, we need a number or we can't answer your question.

When we had the AFR 2 weeks ago, I put about 7 gallons of 12% into my pool in under 24 hours. My FC hit about 30 PPM. I was a little concerned, but it fell quickly down to a normal level.

Someone posted about a public pool at 50+ ppm. They said the people in the pool didn't really notice, but that it bleached some swimsuits.

At least fifteen minutes, preferably a little longer.
