Hello all, I haven't posted since last year when I began using the BBB method. I have really loved my pool since. I am still using it and the pool looks good. Here is my question...I add a gallon or 2 gallons of bleach as the pool calculator tells me but by the next day I am having to add 2 gallons again...I did not have to do this last year. I am using the TF100 test kit. Here are my numbers:
This is pretty much what I test at every morning. I don't run all the test every day but always the chlorine and CC's and PH. The pool was shocked until I passed the OCT on July 8 &9. I had had a party and we are having high temps here in Ga also. It was looking cloudy so I shocked. I am using Bleach from Ingles as it was on sale and before that was using Wal Mart Bleach. I did go on line and the Ingals brand, Laura Lynn is 6%. I was also having this problem with the Great Value from WalMart. We have had high temps, for 1 week in the hundreds 3 or 4 days straight.
Last year it seems I was using half this amount and I was just wondering if everyone else is using this much bleach. I am trying to attach a pic of the pool but having a little trouble...if not I will post like this and follow up when I get the pic on...Thanks for your help, Cindy
