Hi All, here are my results. I did my best to estimate pool volume at 14,324 gallons. The water is pretty crystal clear at the moment and I stuck 4-5 pucks in the chlorinator about 2 weeks ago (water was clear before I did that) and have been running the pump about 3 hours a day. Not currently swimming in it (too cold in CA for now). I try to brush it once a week and notice just a bit of brown spots on the walls form if I don't brush for 2+ weeks.
Looks like the site won't let me upload my Excel screenshot chart via JPEG (only 100kb!), so here is what I've got:
FC (Free Chlorine) - 0
PH (Acidity/Aklalinity) - 7.5
TA (Total Alkalinity) - 90
CH (Calcium Hardness) - 340
CYA (Cyanuric Acid) - 45
CC (Combined Chlorine) - 0
Bromine - 0
Based on the PoolMath calculator and a 14,324 gallon pool, I need a FC shock level of 18 which is about 389oz of 8.25% of liquid chlorine. My questions are:
1. I assume I should pull the pucks out of the chlorinator when I SLAM?
2. Does the above approach look correct re: FC shock level and amount of chlorine?
3. To avoid multiple trips to the store, about how much chlorine should I buy beyond the initial 432oz (assuming 8.25%)?
