I am new to using this method this year. I must say that so far I am very pleased! After spending tons of cash at the pool store last season and never getting a clear pool something had to change. I have read and reread the pool school....so much so my dh thinks I am obsessed with the pool and this site I have come to terms with the fact I will not be dropping in tablets this year... so I just need to check my FC level every evening and add the appropriate amount of bleach? Also my water is very cloudy, but getting better everyday. I have been vacuuming to waste because we had a tragic event of the cover going in with alot of leaves and debris. I can't see the bottom of the pool. Is this procedure ok? Thanks for any and all advice!
