Just wondering if anyone has tried this. Seems to be working for me and saving a ton of money. Got tired of spending so much money on chlorine, then I tried using bleach but found myself using a ton of it since bleach is pretty weak. So, I buy the 1lb bags of swimming pool shock (like the ones they sell in walmart). I split the powder into about 5 equal parts. Then I add each part to a gallon of water (I use leftover milk jugs, etc). Every week I grab a gallon off the shelf, shake it very well since some of the powder settles and add it to the pool. I've been doing this since I opened the pool in May. My pool has stayed within the chlorine limits and crystal clear since I opened it. As far as the weather, its been hot (80-95 degrees, lots of sun as well as more than average rainfall). So all in all I am spending anywhere from $3-$5 per 1 lb bag of shock and getting 5 gallons of chlorine out if it which last me on average a month. Just curious what you all think about this?
