    Cool caNwa Just trying to cool down

    Hi, I am Connie and I am in Eastern WA State. I have a 12x30 above the ground Intex pool. It sits on my concrete patio and in last week we have seen temps of 103* making my patio register at over 120*! The pool water was sitting at a bath water of about 92 degrees. It has wreaked havoc on my chlorine levels. It seems impossible to get tech chlorine level up. I shock it about 2 times a week. I add liquid chlorine and it's costing a fortune. I just bought some bleach and thought I'd give that a try.. then add my stabilizer. I love my little pool and it is so relaxing to come home after work and float around. I will be checking out all of the FAQ here.

    Add enough stabilizer to get to a total of 40-50 ppm. That'll help hold your chlorine much better.

    Can you post test results?
