    Re: Phosphates and sudden chlorine drop

    If you properly maintain the Free Chlorine (FC) level relative to the Cyanuric Acid (CYA) level as shown in the Chlorine / CYA Chart, then you should not need to shock your pool on a regular basis. I suggest you read the Pool School for more information. Follow the advice you are getting in your Chlorine won't stay up thread.
