I'm a month into my pool and I'm not willing to pay $200 monthly to maintain my pool. I've had a few visits to Leslie Pool Supply, and each visit they want to sell me something that costs around $50.
In the last three days I've purchased and added 3 bags of shock, 2 big buckets of alkalinity up, acid and calcium for a total of over $200.
Is this normal?
I haven't received my pool test kit yet, I ordered it on Amazon yesterday. Just wondering if people typically steer clear of Leslie Pool Supplies, or if this is just normal for new pool operation.
