I'm looking for people's thoughts on how to schedule chlorine testing & addition, in relation to the daily pump schedule. Last year I used chlorine tablets, but this year I will be following the BBB method and adding liquid chlorine on a daily basis, as necessary.
I generally plan to run the pump about 8 hours per day (though I may fiddle around with the duration this year), during the day when the sun is hitting the pool. This means that when I return home in the evening (6pm or later), the pump will be off, however this will also be the time that I plan to check chlorine levels and add chlorine as necessary. It seems inconvenient to turn on the pump for another half-hour just for the purpose of adding chlorine.
What are other people's pump schedules in relation to chlorine testing?
I'm also thinking about getting a Liquidator so I don't have to worry about this (Only thing holding me back is that I live in Canada and would need to import it from the US)
Thanks in advance!
