    Low Chlorine Read

    We can't get our chlorine readings to come up after shocking pool two nights in a row. Have 4 pucks in skimmer and readings haven't gone up or down.

    FC-very low
    CC-very low
    CH-Ok but a little high

    Water is clear but not the glassy clear

    22000 gallons/AG/DE/hayward powerflo matrix/hp 1.0/rpm 3450/amps 13.8

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Those are not NEARLY specific enough for us to provide any useful help. Let me guess, test strips? They are worthless.

    Order one of the recommended test kits and read Pool School (button at upper right of the page) so you get an understanding of the chemistry.

    Likely you need to go through the Shocking Your Pool PROCESS to clear the water, but that is not possible using test strips.

    What he said ^

    Bite the bullet and spend the $$ on a proper test kit. Or you will be repeating this:
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
