We had a lot of our nieces and nephews over for a bbq today. There were a total of 7 kids at a time in the pool, at one time 10...but everyone left by 3pm. The water looked just a tad hazy. I could still see the bottom of the pool and all..but water wasn't crystal clear. Is that because of all the kids in it all afternoon? I dipped a stick and Chlorine was at 0, PH was at 6.2 and Alklinity was at 180. I poured in a 96oz bottle of bleach in to and dipped another test stick about 30 min after and readings were Chlorine 2, PH 7.8, and Alkalinity 180.
My question is this..how much bleach am I SUPPOSED to pour in at the end of a normal swim day..like just my 3 kids in it off and on during the day. And then how much am I supposed to pour in after a day like today with up to 10 kids in it and the water looking a tad bit hazy??? And how often am I supposed to shock it with bleach--and when shocking it..how much bleach is supposed to be poured in to acheive that?
How often am I supposed to use baking soda and/or borax too? and how much???
