I recently broke my ankle and foot in a few places and have been relying on the kindness of others to watch over and treat my pool. I am not able to move about much without the assistance of a wheelchair and/or walker.
I ran out of liquid chlorine two days ago however yesterday a neighbor dumped in a full gallon of Lowe's Chlorinating Liquid hoping to tide me over until a friend could get to the pool store. Heaven only knows the effectiveness of the dosing but I was ever so grateful for the effort.
Today my four bottle tote of liquid chlorine was delivered by the pool store worker who lives in my area. When I was thanking him he mentioned that they carry granules made by Poolife that don't add any conditioner that I might be able to use myself as opposed to having someone come over and dose the pool every night. The deep end of the pool is just outside the garage and I can wheel chair to the deep end fairly easily.
It's $99 for 25 lbs of granules. I was told it was 78% Calcium Hypochlorite with 22% other ingredients. Other than raising my CH levels is there any other side effect? Even as I become more mobile I will still need all the help that I can get and hauling a 25 lbs bucket every month or so is more appealing than chlorine bottles.
