Hi everyone! We are getting close to choosing a design and builder, etc, and we've met with several builders that all say different things about pool chemistry, of course.
My simple question is this: If I am using the methods described here, once my pool is established, is that me testing the water every single day, and adding liquid chlorine bleach (manually just pouring it in) every single day? I'm sorta confused. I'm just storing tons of bottles of bleach in my garage?
If we did salt water, that's creating the chlorine, so we would test every day to just keep the levels maintained, and not add liquid bleach?
Can someone give me a quick explanation?
We are in the very early stages here so any warnings you've got would be awesome.
Most of the pool builders have mentioned going with regular chlorine and adding a UV system, which I keep reading is not useful. Main thing is my little boy gets terrible itchy eczema after swimming...
