This forum is so great, so helpfull. I am a new member from about 2 weeks ago, haven't post anything yet. Only by reading many good posts here I have understand much more than before. I had my pool from 7 years ago but I have never spent time to study a little bit on how to take care my pool except that I just use shock and chlorine tab (3"). Every year I take all dirty water out and put new water in, try to keep it clean by chlorine tabs and shock and sometimes with algaecide for about 3 months and then forget it when the swiming season is over (when it is too cold to swim)... until the next swiming season, do all that works again...
This year I will try to maintain it all year round. I hope I can do it, with the help from many of the experts here.
Thank you Jason and everyone that make this site so usefull.
