I have been putting 8+ jugs in it daily and the chlorine has been holding well for the past 3 days, so what's the problem (I added another 8 jugs last night)? I've put over 40 jugs in since opening 2 weeks ago! The first couple of days, I had the chlorine up to 20 the first two days after opening. I don't have my ladder or anything in and I've been vacuuming and brushing constantly also. The pool was a dark green and is now a lighter green. There was algae all around the skimmer but that's been gone for days. I also added some DE to the skimmer twice but that didn't help much. Can I afford for my CYA to go up because I'm seriously thinking about getting some bags of shock. I'm tired of lugging all these bleach bottles out to the pool. I'm using Tandil bleach from Aldi's and I'm beginning to wonder if the stuff is weak.
