After weeks of unsuccessful results working my pool store folks, I am now ready to follow the TPF method to test my own water and get rid of algae! I've been reading all of the Pool School stuff, plus the manual that's come with my newly acquired Taylor test kit, and have a couple of questions before I "dive" in:
1. Is there an estimate on how much liquid chlorine bleach I should buy at the grocery to have enough on hand? Does 10 gallons sound reasonable (I don't want to have to keep going back to the store...). I have a 25,000 gallon pool.
2. My Taylor Pool & Spa water chemistry guide booklet makes the statement: "Always wait one complete filtration cycle after chemical treatment to test water".... Is a complete filtration cycle the 12 hours my pump is on (notwithstanding the various high frequency and overnight tests that pool school recommends) or 12 hours it runs plus the 12 hours it is off. What if I add the chemicals in the middle of a 12 hour pump cycle?
