    I know why the Chlorine is so high in the pool I am buying

    fixing to close on a house with pool I am buying, and was cleaning up from the bad storms we had.
    So after I finish vacuumimg the pool, the pool boy comes in the back yard with 2 big carboys, and up ends them in the shallow end.
    no test no nothing just dumps them.

    FC was already 10+.

    But there is no algae

    WOW! 2?? I bet there is no algae! Is he doing a weekly service? Did he also add puck to the inline?

    Have you tested the water yet?

    That is neat they are letting you keep the pool in shape before you closed.

    Can I assume there will be no more pool service once you close?
