I am using chlorine tablets through a chlorine feeder to keep my pool under control.
On two occasions I omitted to replace new tablets quickly enough, as the old ones had dissolved and finished.
My pool water had started to go cloudy, and thankfully increasing the dosage, within three days the water returned to sparkling again.
In using an AquaChek test strip, it is reading that although I have a good free chlorine result, my ph, total alkalinity, and stabilizer readings are zero.
What are the disadvantages in ignoring these three last indicators, and what are the advantages in rectifying them please?
