Great site with massive amount of info, Thank you.
This is my 1st post. Had some issues with metal staining which lead me to this sight, well that and what I felt was the lack of pool store knowledge. I am in the middle of my first shock using 10% bleach. My water was pretty clear (I thought) considering all the stain magnet and sequester the pool store had me using but I was getting a 1.8cc reading(K 2006). 2 days into the process it s looking great. Attempting to keep fc at 25 but 20 seems to be a brick wall? 20 will work correct? Just take longer? Once I get overnight fc drop to just 1 I will need to check and adjust my other levels. Since I was pool stored the 1st year with the pool I have PH up, down, calcium,..etc. Is it ok to use this stuff up as needed before going to full BBB method? I should mention my staining seems to be under control now. I am adding 10 oz weekly sequester and have a 4.0 culator in pump basket. It's been in 2 days and seems to be changing to a bluish purple already.
My Intial readings 3 days ago- the day my K 2006 came
fc .2 I had to add 4 scoops to get pink water (25ml line)
cc 1.8 did test twice. 4 scoops have any bearing on this reading?
cya 70 thanks to pool store and my lack of knowledge
Pool store readings 4 day ago
They recommended ph up, 12 lbs of calcium, I did not do anything, knew my test kit would be here soon.
Didn't mention 1 thing about cholrine being too low with 70 cya
