I have been learning from the site and love all of the information! I am starting to SLAM.
I just got my Taylor k-2006 yesterday.
Before adding bleach (10% sodium Hypochlorite from Atwoods)
According to the Pool Math I needed to add 1 gallon+ 3quarts+ 2 cups bleach
We have a 21x52 above ground vinyl. According to a calculator it holds MAX 11,300 gallons, I used this amount for SLAM/chlorine purpose.
CYA/Chlorine chart said I needed 16ppm (I rounded CYA to 40) to SLAM
Problem: I added correct amount (1 gallon and 3+quarts) measured my Chlorine with kit and it only showed a level of 10ppm. ( I used 20 drops of regent 0871 before it turned clear, using the 10 mL sample. (20 x.5 = 10ppm)). We are opening the pool so it is green. I know there are CC's.
Is this the correct amount of chlorine or do I need to add more?
