My name is Brandi and we live in Southern Oregon.
I have just recently become...well the primary pool caretaker of the pool again and finding that it is out of our budget to maintain it with the HTH products we were purchasing.
I have been searching for using bleach instead of the other and read, read, read. However I have not found anything that says if I need to drain my pool before adding bleach and starting fresh using the bleach method instead of the very high priced HTH products.
So I guess that is my main reason for being here.
I am baffled with if we should drain our pool and just start all over with the bleach method which I really don't want to do as it takes so long to warm up again and my bones can't stand the cold! (smiling)
Last week I added 3 super shocks as it was getting green, and it is going to start getting green again if I don't do something.
I have not added any tablets to the skimmer in about 2 weeks as we don't have any.
I do have more shock left, but really want to learn how to maintain with the bleach and soda.
Nice to meet everyone.
Happy swimming to ya all.
