    New Pool Owner/ New to BBB

    Hello everyone, I bought a foreclosed home with a swamp out back. i read pool school and after 30+ gallons of bleach( for SLAM), 10 boxes of borax and 5 baking soda I have a sparkling clear pool. THANKS TFP!!!
    Here's some quick numbers from this a.m with Taylor K2005 kit
    FC 5
    CC 0
    PH 7.8
    CYA 80
    TA 100
    My question is:It looks like it is going to take 2 gals of 8.5 bleach each day, is that about normal for a full sun, 80 degree pool, Thanks in advance

    About 1 gallon would be 2 ppm daily and that is average.

    I am not sure how you slammed with the K-2005 because it won't test the chlorine high enough for you. My guess is the SLAM wasn't complete and you still have remaining organics in the pool.

    I had to dilute pool water 3 times with tap water to get it to read 10 ppm of FC, so i figured i was over 30 ppm during SLAM

    Unless you are on a well, Tap water has chlorine in it. That would have affected your results.
