Are there any chemical kits still on the market that are once-a-week type products?
backstory - i had been using the BBB method successfully since the first year we got our pool (10 years ago?). Wife and I separated May 2014...that year i opened the pool and got it all set, bought all the bleach and even marked what days to add it...every weekend i would come back and find it green...spend the time getting it cleaned up with the assurance she would be able to take care of it this week... Finally closed it green and swore i wouldn't open it this year. This year she paid a pool co to open and then couldn't be bothered to keep it clean all summer. Went back a few weekends ago and got it cleaned in 3 days, put the cover on.
The house will be on the market this winter, but in the event it hasn't sold by spring, i need to get it opened and keep it sparkling until it sells. So my options are pay a pool co to maintain or find some product that can be applied once a week. When we had the pool installed the co started us on some product we dumped in once a week...and a quick google search shows some product called "relax" but i can't find much info on it...or any other similar products.
