    Clorox PPM recommendation ?

    Clorox ultra is made for pools, so says Clorox. The recommend 2 PPM and not to exceed 4 PPM for bather safety. These leves are lower then the calculated reconditions Can someone explain this? I know I'm at 6 PPM in my pool.

    Found the information in Clorox extended use directions for bleach.

    Along with the rest of the pool industry, they don't recognize the chlorine/CYA relationship so they recommend as if there were no CYA in the pool at all.

    You can also find lots more info on CYA/Chlorine relationship over in the Chem 201 forum.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
