Would somebody please help me understand the "once a bromine pool, always a promine pool" witticism that I keep reading. Everybody seems so happy to repeat that phrase but I don't know what it actually means.
I have a 30k gallon chlorine pool. While on vacation my neighbor called to tell me it looked like a swamp. A local pool company came out to rescue me by adding 2lbs of Yellow Treat, shock, and chlorine tabs in the floater. The pool is beautiful now. Strange thing is that I haven't added chlorine for over a week and it is still sparkling blue.
- Is there some crisis looming on the horizon that I don't know about?
Do I keep adding chlorine as I usually do?
Will the pool behave differently? What should I expect?
I want to add a swg but am affraid that the Yellow Treat will damage it. Is this a reasonable fear?
Any other comments/suggestions would be appreciated
Thank you for your help,
