Starting with a quick question.. As I currently stay in Indonesia, and nobody here knows English, it makes this pool care a whole lot more difficult :P hehe..
Nothing is labeled here. So I thought someone here might be able to help me.
I wanted to get a little stock, so this is what I have:
-Chlorine, I get it in 1kg long plastic bags as granule. No idea what kind of chlorine this is.
-HCL, This I know what is and what I can use it for. My pH tends to slowly go towards a base, so I sometimes add a little of this. No idea how strong it is, but it's strong. Eats away the concrete if I spill some. hehe
-Sodium Hipo 12%, Ok. So this is my main question. After reading, I guess it's supposed to be Sodium Hypo. Ok, this is supposed to be chlorine? Bleach? I tried to test this chemical. Did a normal pH and chlorine test from my pool, and added a small drop of this chemical to each of them to check. pH was lowered, and no different in the chlorine. So what is this? :P hehe. Maybe just more HCL?
-PAC, This is flock. This is what they use here. They have almost no chemicals at hands, so they flock a lot. Not good...
They have never heard of TA, CH, CYA, or anything... So I have no idea how I would modify these values.. Oh well, thats for another post
