I'm going to shock my pool for MA, but I don't want to use up all my reagent and count up to 48 drops twice a day.
I know I saw it somewhere, but can I dilute the 10ml sample with distilled h20 and count drops as 1 instead of 0.5? I just need a ballpark for this cause I dont really care if it's 22 or 20, I'd raise it if it is below 24 and I don't care about cc at this point.
Im so sick of water boatmen in my pool. The pool store tells me I only have 7ppm fc and I tested 17 with the same water. They use some fancy machine and I questioned them on it. They re-tested and got the same number. I can't get rid of the bugs in my pool. I have no visible algae and I brush the walls almost daily...I'm so sick of brushing.
Sorry but I feel like maybe some people just aren't cut out for the work in pool ownership.
My cya is 40
Fc was 17 - before "shocking" added 4lbs lithium (had on hand) brought fc to 31 no cc.
