Hey Everyone, I'm just getting on board now.
Got my K2006 test kit this week, took the cover off Saturday and got my first readings yesterday. My free chlorine was at 0.6 and my CYA was at 80. So my calculations were to add 11 (121 Ounce) Costco size jugs of Clorox to shock to FC 31 (sometimes the 121 ounce size shows up on the Pool Calculator drop down, sometimes not).
I'd like to start using bleach as my exclusive source of Chlorine. I don't want to use pucks anymore. Do my calculations seem correct, I just want to make sure.
I sure did get some looks at Costco with 6 cases of Clorox and the expected "dead body cleanup" joke from the Cashier. I have 5 bags of Baking Soda on standby as well as 5 boxes of Borax.
I have gotten so much great info from this site already, I figured it was time to sign up and go full BBB method. I plan on checking the TA and pH today, I should add the baking soda first to raise both before the Borax, right? Do I seem to be on the right track? Thanks in advance.
