First off, I have read the "How to Chlorinate Your Pool" article in Pool School (BTW, I love Pool School).
What do you recommend for a pool that is not "my pool"? I service some pools (cleaning and chemical balance) and want to do this the best and most cost effective way. Liquid chlorine appears to be the best option. However, if I only service a pool once a week, it is horrible to use a few Trichlor sticks in the skimmer to maintain the chlorine level between servicing?
I'm trying to find an acceptable level of Trichlor use that doesn't add more CYA that the pool can use up. Pool School says, "The CYA that they put into your pool water doesn't get used up, and instead accumulates. Eventually the CYA level will build up to a point that renders your chlorine ineffective."
Is there a level of use of Trichlor that does get used up?
Is there a way to monitor this (Just watch CYA?)?
Is there another option besides adding liquid chlorine throughout the week as needed?
Thanks a bunch. I'm so glad I found this place.
And I love my new TF-100 kit. Just got it yesterday....and wow...my eyes have been opened.
