Quick question re: CC and smell. As I understand it, the chlorine smell is caused by combined chlorines. We switched over to bleach recently and keep it at about 8 - 10ppm due to our high CYA level and no time to dump just yet. When we lift the cover, we can smell the bleach smell, not overpowering like a public hot tub/pool, but it's definitely there. In the water, I scoop some up and sniff and really don't smell it. Our CC as of our most recent test yesterday was 0 (when I did the FC test and then added the 5 drops of R-0003 (Taylor kit), we didn't have any pink at all. In past weeks it's been 0.2 since one drop in a 10ml sample turned it from the light pink back to clear again.
If this smell we're smelling normal?
