New to the site and looking for a change. Reason I searched for a forum like this.
Every year I go to Watsons and buy all my stuff for the season during Pool School week.
I usually drop between $500-$700 depending on what we need to buy that year (solar cover, DE, safety rope etc).
My list always has 30 cases of chlorine, 25 lb 3" tabs, a bucket of PH minus and a bottle of test strips.
I struggle with my pool during late summer with cloudy water, green or excess dirt/crud on the walls and bottom.
I can usually remedy it by vac-to-waste till clean and refill, then dump in 3-4 gallons of chlorine....this seems to be more hassle and a waste of water. This is about once a week.
I have been reading through the site but have yet to really dig into the pool school section.
Still trying to understand why bleach over chlorine sine bleach is more expensive less concentrate.
What should be on my shopping list this season?

Also want to add that the pool stays clear till mid July'ish when temps can reach into the 90's in Kentucky.
Our pool is used daily by 3-4 people and up to 20-25 people every weekend.
