All this season I have not been able to get my FC above zero. After years of using 3" trichlor pucks, I recently switched to using bleach on the advice of this forum. Added around 10 gal of 6% bleach over the last 2 weeks. I have ordered a Taylor K2006 but not yet received it, so in the meantime, here are the results from the pool store from last weekend.
FC: 0 TC: 1.3 pH 8.4 TA: 140 CYA: 33
They said add 7 lb shock and lower the pH. I did, but FC was back to 0 next morning. Do I just continue adding more and more shock??? Just wondering when this will end...
