    Your shock levels are going to be dependant on your CYA levels and not how many gallons of water your pool holds. Test the CYA level and find the CYA/Chlorine chart in pool school for the corosponding shock level treatment and plug your numbers into the pool calculator and away you go!

    You'll still need to add your # of gallons at the top of pool calc so it can figure how much to add to raise your FC by however many points PER your cya level.
