Hello, I just got finished reading pool school but Im not sure Im using the calculator correctly. I emptyed the pool and refilled it today with tap water. I have the HTH 6 way test kit. Heres my tests so far:
Total CL less then 1
Alkalinity- took 13 drops of titrant to turn red
Hardness- Took 18 drops of titarant to turn blue
Put in a shock treatment 5 or so hours ago. Just tested pool water (Total CL and PH only)
Total CL around .5 and PH is 8.2
I havent added any stabalizer yet heading to get that after hubby is off. Trying to get the CL to the right level Should I add the 76 oz of reg bleach. I just add a bit at a time and retest? I know it will go away with out the stabalizer. Should I wait to add bleach until I get the stab in?
