I currently have an ecosystem where my pool used to be (tadpoles and water bugs and leaves, oh my!), and this weekend will be dedicated to reversing that situation. The last 3 or 4 days, I've been going out a couple times a day to remove what leaves I could get, since I can't see the bottom I'm not sure how much is still down there. My test kit should be coming in today, and I have the next three days to devote to the pool and beginning to get it straightened out. I see in pool school that they recommend a minimum of 4 times the amount of bleach to bring the pool to shock level, and that's what I have now, but I was curious as to how bleach much people actually needed and used. Regardless, I am going out to get more bleach today because I'd rather have extra than not enough, but I wanted to see what others ended up needing to use. Thanks!
