    What is shock level with CYA of 60

There are instructions at Pool School.
    Just clarifying for myself, for a CYA level of 60 wouldn't they need to bring the FC level up to 24 to shock. That's what I would think based on the CYA/Chlorine relationship chart. I just want to make sure that I'm understanding the chart correctly.

    There are two different CYA/Chlorine charts. I tend to use the one in my Pool Calculator, other people use the one in Pool School. Pool Calculator says 18, Pool School says 24. As it happens, either level will work. Raising FC to 24 will require more chlorine, but will work more quickly.

    OK, thanks. I was actually just playing with the calculator putting in different numbers and seeing the results. The more I use it, the more stuff I find that it does. I actually had just clicked on the heading "Suggested FC Levels" and read the notes. Until tonight, I didn't know there was info under each heading. Cool app.
