Guys, I posted this in someone else's thread but thought I'd post it again here instead of hijacking their conversation.
I have a decent test kit from a local pool place. It'll test FC, TC, TA, Ph, CYA and CH. But the chlorine readings don't go any higher than 5.0.
When I'm shocking the pool and want to keep the levels really high, how can I tell where I am before it falls below 5 again ? Do I double the sample of water, add the reagents, pour some back into the comparator and then double the result I get ? Or even go to 4 tmies as much and quadrupling the result ? Just trying to think of a way to make that work.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Would like to know the FC numbers as well as TC/CC without having to get my water tested by those guys.
Just bought a house and I'm trying to bring a pool back to life from green swamp status. A day of BBB and high chlorine levels with bleach and I'm no longer green. Have a blue cloudy pool now and I'm trying to see what I need to do next.
