What The... Dichlor/bleach?


Recommended Posts

I have a 2010 HS Jetsetter with ozone. I recently switched to the dichlor/bleach method. Used dichlor for 2 weeks. Last night I shocked to 10 ppm chlorine with bleach. Checked FC today and it was .5 ppm. Is this normal, shouldn't I have a max of 50% chlorine demand. Is the ozone doing this?

BTW, I'm using a Taylor Test Kit.

A few things:

How old is your fill water?

What was your chlorine demand at the beginning of the fill?

Sounds like you are at 95% chlorine demand. Your tub is likely contaminated. I would recommend following nitros decontamination procedure.

or you may have had a lot of CC, High chlorine demand does not always mean you need to decontaminate. If you do not use enough chlorine for your personal bather load and chlorine demand, over the week, the CC will build up, this is when the chlorine is working on oxidizing, not sanitizing, giving a low free chlorine reading. What was the CC reading. Shock it again to 10 and see if it comes back to normal, or you can try MPS to shock with.
