I have a 14,000-gallon pool that is a little cloudy with algae. I'm wondering how many 12.5% sodium gallons of chlorine I should add to shock it overnight. I bought 8 gallons today. The pool guy said to add all 8 gallons of chlorine, but I feel like that's too much for a 14,000 gallon pool.
How much liquid chlorine to add into a pool with algae to shock it?

You are correct. 8 gallons is too much. But I can't tell you how much to add without knowing what the stabilizer level is in the water. It would be even better if you could provide the following information:
Above ground or in ground pool?
If in ground, is it a vinyl lined pool, a plaster/gunnite pool, a fiberglass pool?
Current readings for:
Combined Chlorine or total chlorine
Do you use a Salt Water Generator to chlorinate the water?
