    Before I head to the store, someone check my #'s

    Did a drain last night to get my CYA down....it is ready to be shocked.
    Also have a green pool.

    These are my #'s

    FC-5
    CC-0
    PH:7.6
    TA:90
    CYA:35

    To get to a shock level of 14, if I'm doing this right, the Pool Calculator is saying to add 3875 oz. of bleach which is about 32 gallons.....is this right???

    I get 429 ounces of 6 percent bleach.
    POOL: Intex ultra new in 2014 (32 x 16 x 52) (seasonal; on concrete pad covered with 1.5" extruded or whatever foam insulation sheets - ugly, but comfy); added a through-wall skimmer; I add salt for feel. EQUIPMENT: Pentair SuperFlo pump (1HP, 2SPD); Pentair cartridge filter (200 sq. ft); Pentair MasterTemp natural gas heater (400,000 btu) Climate/Location: Eastern Nebraska

    So that is 3 gallons plus one quart.

    If using 8.25 percent bleach, it is 312 ounces.

    Did you put a decimal for the bleach percentage? If so, you don't need to.

    That sounds WAY high for a pool the size of yours, although you may well need that much to finish the whole process. I also get about the same number call it under 4 gallons, but don't forget you will likely need to boost it back to shock level often, I would start out with around 10 gallons on hand if the store is nearby.

    You should also lower your pH down to about 7.2 before you start the shock proces

    Ok, somebody can knock me in the head now. I ran my numbers again and got the same result so I made my daughter read everything out to me....I had 285500 gallons of water!!!! That's a huge pool.
    Thanks for the help guys or I would have ruined my pool.
