I don't see my situation on the chlorine/CYA chart. I have salt water (not for long- getting rid of it), CYA 48, FC 8.5, CC 1.
I also am new to this BBB method and self-testing.
I also am trying to determine how much liquid chlorine is needed to shock my pool.
Also, when testing alkalinity (Taylor 2006), I am supposed to add drops until the green turns "red". Does this mean the darkest color of "pink" shown on the tester? or does it mean when the green first goes away?
Isn't my FC of 8.5 too much? Won't adding more bleach to shock the pool send it even higher?
When testing chl using the DPD powder in the Taylor kit it is impossible to get that little scooper perfectly filled with powder. How exact do I have to be?
Still don't know how much 6% bleach to put in.
