    Amazing how much I forget

    I took the cover off my pool yesterday. Amazing it was crystal clear. I tested my CYA it was 0 so I added enough to get it to 40. I have a good test kit K-2006. My FC was 0 I added what I had and tested at 4.9 I added what I thought was enough bleach to get me to 16. I think I forget how to test it says now that my FC is 28! I'm confused! How did it get so high?

    I do not quite follow. Either you added a lot of FC or there is a testing error.

    Actually, how did you get 4.9? If you used 10ml of water it is a multiple of 0.5. If you used 25ml of water it is a multiple of 0.2.

    Initially I used 25ml then realized that I could do 10ml I must have done the math wrong. I added 3 bottles of 8.25% 121 ounces. It should not be 28 FC should it? I should probably retest.

    The 3 bottles should add 18ppm according to PoolMath.

    Thank you. I must just be rusty. I will find my groove again. I have never opened a clear pool until this year I have never opened a pool that needed almost nothing.
