Two hours ago it was 15tc and now it’s 13. Pool math says to add 94oz to get to 16. But I’ve consistently added extra and still haven’t gotten to 16 I also want to quit for the day. How much should I add to the pool?
If you do a 9999 to 1 dilution with chlorine free water the resulting concentration in ppm will equal the original concentration in percent. There are various ways to do the 9999 to 1 dilution, none of them particuarly easy to get right without some lab equipment. One thing you can try is 10 ml of bleach into a 1 liter soda bottle and then dilute that again 10 ml to 1 liter. Most people have a test kit vial which can measure 10 ml and 1 liter soda bottles are not that difficult to come by.
Just don’t use bleach with anything other than bleach in it. Clorox has a bunch of extra stuff you don’t want. Best to use the chlorinating liquid if available.I have some bleach in the house and they all have the best by 11/11/21/20 (not a typo). I purchased these all from ALDI today.
The only place I’ve seen liquid chlorine is at Walmart but I saw a post about that being terrible.Just don’t use bleach with anything other than bleach in it. Clorox has a bunch of extra stuff you don’t want. Best to use the chlorinating liquid if available.
121oz x3=363oz is what I added around 8pm. I just check and the tc is now 18.5!
So now I just keep doing this until it’s clear?
