    Confused about shock level

    From the chart it says to have shock level at 28 for my salt water pool but on the calculator it says suggested shock level 20. Which do I use? Right now I have FC 18.5 and cc 2. My pool water is green.

    Either way ... the chart is a little more aggressive, but both are perfectly safe and acceptable.

    Another question is I could only find concentrated bleach which is 7% would that throw antlything off? I'm either adding 22 oz or 138 oz of bleach (per calculator)

    Never heard of 7% ... all the new stuff I thought had gone to 8.25%

    Just put the % in the upper part of the calculator ... it will give you the correct volume to add.
