This is our 2nd year with a pool. The people on this forum have helped turn my green pool into a crystal clear pool both summers. I'm very grateful. I also feel that next year I will have a much better understanding of how to not let my CYA get too high by using chlorine bleach instead of Trichlor or Dichlor, so I can keep my FC lower, which will consume less chlorine.
Right now, our CYA is 80, so I've been keeping my FC at 12. At this level, I've been adding about 3 gallons of bleach per day. This is getting to be a real pain to buy, transport, and dispose of 20-30 gallons of bleach every week. Additionally, it is costing $50- $75 weekly.
So- any ideas on what I could do differently? Buy bleach in 55 gallon drums? Switch to SWG? Drain and refill the pool and get CYA to 30 and keep it there? Any other ideas?
I've got an ozonator. Should I turn that off?
Being that the pool is only 2 years old, I'm reluctant to throw out any of our equipment, and switch, but if switching to SWG is the answer, let's hear it.
