Your chlorine level is based on your Cyanuric acid (stabilisor) as indicated in Chlorine / CYA Chart relative to your Pool Levels
Bearing in mind
For every 10 ppm Free Chlorine (FC) added by Trichlor, it also increases Cyanuric Acid (CYA) by 6 ppm.
For every 10 ppm FC added by Dichlor, it also increases CYA by 9 ppm.
For every 10 ppm FC added by Cal-Hypo, it also increases Calcium Hardness (CH) by at least 7 ppm

You are better off just using Sodium hypochlorite (Plain Bleach)
