I really wanted to reply to another thread but it seems I am not allowed. There is a post by user 'Piku' located at : Trouble Free Pool Forum Index » Testing the Water » TF100 Chlorine Confusion
Piku is trying to get a chlorine reading in his pool and has determined that he may need to go as high as 100 ppm for his FC level to successfully chlorinate the pool. He then goes on to ask if that would damage any of his equipment (i'm assuming something like a vinyl liner etc.). I have the same concern I suppose. In other forums I've seen people recommend not going any higher than 15ppm so I'm a bit confused. Can someone explain how I've got it wrong here ?
Also, my other question is with regards to the pool calculator. If i have correct levels for everything but FC and I punch that into the pool calculator and put 0 FC Now, 10 FC Goal (which i think is the correct goal FC for shocking your pool ? ) for 6%, it returns 207 oz (just under 4 gallons). Is the idea that I pour 207 oz. of 6% bleach in front of my return and let it sit for 30 minutes, then take another reading, and repeat the process until the FC's remain at 10 for over an hour ? I read the stickies , but i'm just writing this out to make sure I have it correct.
Thank You, - S
