Hey I'm new to TFP and was hoping someone could point me in the direction of some money saving tips? I've had a pool for several years now and run into problems all the time but I finally found my way around them all. The worst time I had was getting bad advice from a pool shop who had tested my water and told me I needed to shock my pool to above 7 ppm chlorine! However my cyanuric acid was so high that none of the shock did anything. (That was a hard one to figure out on my own especially since the shop kept telling me to shock.)
I'm looking to save some bucks in the next couple years since my pool tends to cost me a lot. I was hoping there was a guide to keeping the pool clean and stabalized with the minimal amount of chlorine or other sanitizing agent. I live in AZ so I go through a lot of chlorine even though my CY levels are balanced.
Thanks in advance for any advice or help!
