Hi - I'm just curious as to how much shock others are using to get a
chlorine reading after opening your pool.....I have a 20x40 and find
that I usually have to add about 15-20lbs of calcium hypochlorite
(non-stablilized) when I open my pool to get a stable reading. After
that, I usually shock 4lbs every week or two. Pool is closed with a
floating feeder and appropriate chemicals for the winters here in KC.
Automatic chlorinator is set to the highest setting and I use a 3"
stablized tablet....heater is on, so I go through chlorine pretty
quickly this time of year.
Would adding a stabilizer during startup help or is this just the way
it goes? Inquiring minds want to know....
