I started to shock yesterday and have added 5, 182 oz 6% bleach and pool is starting to clear up. I have never had to use this much bleach before, but it's never rained this much in one month either. I'm trying to get the water back to that crystal clear that we all strive for, not the dull just OK water. Besides getting a better test kit I'm open 4 suggestions.....
