My pool seems recovered from a recent algae bloom. I haven't yet received my test kit so went through 5 days of adding considerable amounts of bleach, and filtering 24 hours a day. The water has been very clear for a couple of days so I figure most of the Chlorine will now be FC instead of CC?
I stopped adding bleach 2 days ago. All I've got at the moment is the little OTO kit that came with the pool. Day before yesterday it was the color of a blood orange. Yesterday, a medium-dark orange.
I know this is probably beyond the accuracy of the test, but given the above conditions am I safe to let it continue trending down for a couple of more days? I imagine I'll have the full test kit sometime this week. I just don't want to lose any ground in the meantime. On the other hand I don't want to be over-chlorinating my wife!
