Brand new to pools, so learning a bunch (and very overwhelmed), but here's the story. I bought my home on 9/30, and a week later took my water sample to Texsun Pool to get analyzed. They were stunned at the Chlorine level, and we eventually found out that there was an algae bloom and the pool was super chocked. (texsun even asked if it was a salt pool because of presence of salt, but this is a Chlorine pool and always has been to my knowledge).
Here we are on 10/24 and the chlorine level still hasn't gone down.
So I bought a Taylor test kit, and have been struggling to comprehend everything (maybe I'm just dense), but I'm still open to having someone manage the chemistry for me.
Would you hire the previous technician if they let the pool get to where it is now?
