    Converting from Kemtek All-In_one Chlorinating Granules to Bleach

    I just started using the TF-100 Test Kit. All looks good. However, I just ran out of the chlorine granules and want to use liquid bleach. I've been putting two oz of the granules in each night, but I can't figure out how to do daily maintenance with bleach. What am I missing?

    Use Pool Math to figure how much 2 oz of the granules were raising your FC. Then use Pool Mat to figure how much bleach you will need for that same rise in FC.

    PoolMath is on the pull down tab bar on every page of this website. Get familiar with it and it will tell you how much of each chemical you need. You got the right test kit. Since I'm in Seattle too, the cheapest place I've found to buy bleach, if you're a member, is Costco. I get Muriatic Acid from Lowes. Good luck.
