I'll delete this once its answered and i realize i'm a dummy. the end of my brush broke off when scrubbing the pool a week or so ago. I'm in shock mode right now, so i havent gone in the water. Leaves and other debris will consume the chlorine's efforts. Will the end of my brush eat up any of the chlorine too?
side note, the shocking to a clear pool is taking a tad longer than it did the last few years.. so i just want to make sure i have mmy bases covered.
