I just started caring for my own pool a few weeks ago. I was reading about the chlorination methods proposed here - primarily bleach and not using tablets due to the stabilizer build up issue.
What I'm wondering is - if you guys and gals are adding bleach to your pools every day to get them to stay clean, how is it that pool services are able to accomplish the same thing for many people with only one visit a week?
Call me totally crazy but I really don't want to be messing with my pool more than once a week. I have many other things I need and prefer to do. Is there something I'm missing?
