This site has been a big help. I finished the summer using up my chlorine tablets but with my Taylor test kit I was able to keep from visiting the pool store and I'm looking forward to next year when I can go completely BBB. I had a ginormous bucket of tablets so I used them...have never had a reading for CYA.
This past month I ran out of the chlorine tablets but the pool looked okay (except for the leaves that I had to scoop out). The readings from my test kit are:
FC - 0
CC - 0
pH - 7.2
TA - 110
CYA - 0
So my question is I'm ready to put the cover (Looploc) on but not certain what to do about the chlorine level since I'll be dropping water levels and blowing out lines (it can get cold in HotLanta).
