    Starting BBB system - got quick question

    I think I understand most of what I've read, but just wanted to confirm a couple things:

    1. If shocking with bleach, I want to get my level up around 21ppm, correct.
    2. To figure the proper level, I use the Pool Calulator and put in my existing FC level (say 4 or 5) and then put in 21 form my goal, correct?

    thanks in advance......also, I tried searching for the answer. If anyone has "how to shock with bleach" bookmarked, and if it's not too much trouble, send it along.

    Need more details .... like what is your CYA level to use to determine the shock level?

    Or did you have a previous post with that type of info ... I can not remember.

    Go to pool school and there is a link in there about how to shock.

    I think I asked my question wrong. I read the Pool School stuff, etc. I was more or less trying to confirm how to shock with the Pool Calulator correctly. I just finished adding CYA today so I don't have readings. I was just playing around with the calulator and wanted to confirm how it worked. I don't plan to shock in the near future, just getting ahead of the game.

    Thanks, jed

    Yes.

    Also, make sure that your volume is correct in the "Size" box.

    Ok got you ... sorry for the misunderstanding. Sound like you get it. Just be sure to set the pool size at the top and set your goals at the bottom. Also it is best to input all the now parameters as some dosing suggestions are affected by other valves ... like the TA now may affect the pH dosages.

    I was confused by the mention of 21ppm with no reference to the CYA.
