I opened the pool about 2 weeks ago. Grabbed 2 cases of 12.5% chlorine $2.75/gal...
Also picked up a gallon of 31% muratic acid.
For now I will manually dose the Chlorine as needed.
I also just ordered the tf-100 test kit. Will report numbers back when the come.
I aimed for Chlorine ~ 2ppm using basic test strips....Typically would use 3" tabs in chlorinator
I would just dose a 60% algacide weekly just because and never had an algae issue....
I would also shock with a bag or 2 of shock weekly as well during summer....
I would adjust pH with dry powders. What should I expect with pH now since no Tabs?
do I still need to shock? And what do I use? And when, weekly or based on the chlorine tests?
do I still need algacide? And if so i read only polyquate 60% Recomended brand? weekly or just if I see some cloudy?
