I have been shocking for about a month, I won't give all the tests but I had been losing 3 to 5.5 ppm on the OCLT. The water has cleared for a couple of weeks now and looks very good.
On 8/16 @ 11:15 AM I added 2 cups bleach, then tested at 3 pm
Topped off with about an inch of water.
7:45 pm test
TC=22.75 I added no bleach.
8/17/11 8AM, Had to test twice because I couldn't believe these results.
I have not added any bleach today and only 2 cups yesterday?
5:45 pm test
Is this possible? Am I finally finsihed with all the bleach? I was dumping in 3 to 4 qts per day and slowly going down to 2 to 3 qts.
Is it safe to turn on my SWG?
Thank you all so much for the help, esp., Linen, who had me hold off on the SWG before and for all the help and support.
