Here is what I got this evening:
I'd like to shock, so I can get to a baseline quickly.
My pump is up and running.
My cover (black tarp-like pool cover) is on.
Pool is starting to look a tad green.
I've put 3 96oz jugs of cheap bleach (5.25%?) in sporadically since April.
Should I tackle pH or FC first?
I have 2 128oz jugs of 6% bleach ready to go, and the grocery store 1 mile away stocks it.
I also have 3 1lb bags of SunGuard Multishock (Cal Hypo 47.6% and Sodium Tetraborate Pentahydrate 29.8%). I would like to use these up since I have them, if I can.
Pool Calculator says
3.2 jugs (128oz jugs) or 3lbs 7 oz of the Cal Hypo
36oz of Borax
On dry chemicals, should I get a large measuring cup that does ounces?
