When I filled up the pool, I did not know about this forum and took advice from a friend. When the pool filled, I added 6 containers of bleach (96 oz. each) and the recommended start up dose of algea guard, which was 4 oz. Tested the water couple hours later with the hth 6 way test strips and it appeared to read FC: 10, which is the highest on the strip, and cya: 50, I think, was hard to match the color. That was yesterday evening. Tonight when I tested the water, FC was close to zero, with the cya looking about the same. I poured 2 more containers of bleach, and now that I see this forum, I am afraid I have put too much. I know the strips are probably not accurate, but I do not want my kids to swim in water that is not safe or has too much chlorine.
