We bought our house with this pool in February (see sig).
Got a Taylor kit last week, read and reread tons of stuff here already and are now finishing up the shocking process, as we were fighting algae over the last few weeks. Now water is nice and clear, will do overnight test tonight to make sure all is good.
I want to have a plan of action in place, to stay on top of things moving forward. I plan on tryng to hold the CYA at around 75 with FC at 6. (It WAS at 30 CYA/4 Ppm, which in our situation seems like wasn't near good enough). The problem I foresee is our 2 Goldens, who are in the pool almost every day, and bring a ton of water out with them. I think this would mean I may have to add small amounts of stabilizer on a regular (weekly? ??) basis, or do more frequent testing than dog- free pools, but wanted some ideas and guidance.
