NEWBIE ALERT! I've had my money pond since 2000 and want to stock up at Menards when it goes on sale. I know all sorts of things can affect the pool water; i.e., weather, sun, bather load (which is unfortunately not much these days). I live in the Franklin (Milwaukee, WI) area and plan on having pool open from May 16th through September 30 (about 18 weeks). Just would like a guestimate so I can stock up and save some $. THANK YOU SO!
