How do I mesure amounts of dry chemicals for the pool- like if I want to add one ounce and the bottle is two pounds- how do I know how much to add?


Measure pool chemicals

I have found the easiest way is to use an old cup, glass or I cut a plastic water bottle in half. I use a kitchen scale to see the capacity of each cup/bottle for the chemical. I keep separate and different containers for each of my chemicals.

So for me, one cup is about 7 ounces. If I need 2 ounces, I use about a third of a cup. Minor errors or variations make virtually no difference in practice.
