The idea of paying too much for the mineral springs is one that resonates with me too. And I too have been "poolstored" (which in and of itself is a term new to me.. )
So here is the question of alternative medicine for the pool comes up thus-Ly:
Is there a recipe equivalent for the 30ish pound bag of beginnings and 6ish pounds of renewal that would be equally effective at a much lower cost?? If so does anyone know what it is and can it be posted??
I would buy solar salt and such and be would mix it myself.
I have 5 bags of beginnings in storage and 30ish bags of renewal sitting in my storage that I would love to not have to replace with more of the same..
I have a 26000 gal pool with the mineral springs swg and t15 cartridge...
