I've been sick and neglected my pool about a week now. I haven't tested but did put in a gal of bleach every other day or so. Somehow still clear and sparkly at the moment. I've run out of bleach and am not up to going to store. Then I remembered I have a box of 1 lb Poolife Turbo Shock bags that came with the pool. Problem is it says 78% calcium hypochlorite and 22% other. I searched online but couldn't find what "other" ingredients includes. Anyone know if this has copper or other nasties in it? If it's safe to use, then how do I figure out what it will raise FC? I looked at pool calculator but didn't know which powder to choose and none said 78%. Feel dumb but I've never used anything but bleach before. I just need something to tide me over a few days until I feel better. As always, thank you to the wise minds that keep this such a wonderful site! Last test results:
Based on my general daily burn rate and the amount I think I've added I'm thinking I will hit FC 0 sometime during the day tomorrow. Knock knock knocking on algae's door.
