CH does not affect CL.

You say your “ cl still tests .5” and then say “ Cl 3”.

What type of chlorine did you add?

If liquid chlorine you think the jug may have degraded?

Thanks AJ this morning it cl was 3. I try to keep my daily level around six. So I added another 32 ounces to bring it up after I added the calcium since I’m a little low. I get my chlorine in 2 1/2 gallon blue jugs purchased six all from the same fresh palate at the local pelican. This chlorine was testing fine but it was the end of the jug. I go through about a jug a week. Pool has been crystal clear stable and has passed the OCLT every night since opening two weeks ago. Pump has been on and I’ve brushed and the robots been going
