I am coming up on second season and only went to pool store first season however am ready to start the journey of getting pool and keeping pool balanced especially with this south Florida heat.
My main concern today is 8,200 gallons and was told cya is 118 because local pool store recommended chlorine tabs eventhough we were shocking and have the ionizer. Any recommendation would be appreciated. I finally got pH up and alkalinity up to levels to swim this afternoon. Is it safe for my two children to swim with CYA at 118? I also noticed another post online that said no to clarifiers. Thanks so much for your help
