We have just put up a pool filled it from the hose about 2 weeks ago. Brought water to our local pool store. Added what they told me to add to get the PH, TA, CH, CYA & algicide where they said it should be. They talked my into the Susatin pool chemical so right now that is what I am using. A week ago I found this website & have been reading like crazy. I added the shock tablets last night. I received my TF-100 test kit today & these are my first readings.
FC 38 drops x .05 = 1.9
CC 9 drops x .5 = 4.5
I'm a little confused with calculating my chlorine reading, that's why I wrote it out. After reading through the website it seems like the BBB method is the way to go but since I have already bought the Sustain system I want to finish them before I switch. Any advice would be great. Also, where should me chlorine levels be & how high is to high to swim?
