I have been lurking for a couple of weeks and learning about the BBB method and converting to Chlorine from Baq. Well, I started today, had the TF 100 test kit for a week and decided to start since this week and weekend it calls for cloudy to rainy weather and figured it was the best time since we couldnt swim anyways.
I started this evening with 3 gallons of Bleach 6% and was ready for the color display but all that came was a cloudy pool. I waited 15 mins and checked the FC (1st time to ever try to use the kit) and I couldnt get a reading so I used the OTO and it said there was about 1 TC?!?
I added 3 more gallons and then started to see the green murky water YAY!!!!
Tested again and got what I believe was a FC of 3 and CC of 8
I added 4 more gallons of bleach and waited about 15 mins and tested again all levels and got
So I added 2 gallons of bleach
FC at 1 so I added the last 3 gallons of bleach from the original 15 gallons I bought today.
Just tested and (20 mins after)
Am I testing right? I am filling the chlorine only up to 10ml using the small scooper on the stick nothing more, swirling for about 25 seconds and its a very light pink so I start adding drops. to clear.
Is it normal to add in 3 gallons and 30 minutes later have a FC of 1?
I do have alot of white floaties and a green pool that I cant see the bottom in
