    Re: LOL

    The truly disturbing part is that the first answer CITES RICHARD (chem geek), arguably one of the most respected posters on this forum. Obviously, the answer cites him incorrectly (which is to say, it says he's saying something he isn't), but most readers will never realize that.
    Pool School helps me maintain my 13,500G 24' x 48" ASP with Sand Filtration using a TF100 Test Kit and Pool Calculator.
    Remember, the Shock Process should be followed until : 1. CC is less than 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Re: LOL

    Yeah, they refer to a post I wrote that was about never mixing acid directly with chlorine. It had nothing to do with the safety of bleach in swimming pools.

    I tried to edit the answer and I couldn't. I looked up in the help menu and apparently the answer is considered a "reference topic" and cannot be edited, but you can suggest that it needs improvement. I did so.

    Re: LOL

    I recently had a pool party and several people commented how good the water appeared and felt. Several said this was the first pool they had been in that didn't irritate their eyes. Funny, considering that I use bleach as my chlorine source although keeping the water balanced with regard to pH and TA in particular also helps.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    Re: LOL

    LOL is right. Kind of scary too.

    My wife's friend at work has a small pool business and he installed a pool liner for me. His son was there with him also. While alone with his son, I asked if he'd ever used bleach as the chlorine source. He said- no, bleach is too strong don't use that. I said- oh yeah(I resisted)...and slowly walked away.
