Have the Pool Store Blues
Hello, we purchased our home a little over a year ago, pool already installed, it had some issues, and we worked to repair the orbiter, and replaced the filters and the pump. I want to move away from using the 3" pucks from Leslie's it seems everything including the shocks have stabilizer in them, so, I have begun using liquid chlorine as of last week. I am completely satisfied with it. However; the pool store is saying that liquid chlorine is bad for my pool and will raise my PH to high. BUT, before I started using the liquid my PH kept bottoming out. Here are my last test results from the pool store. The other reason I want to quit the pucks as I forgot to mention is the water is 1 year old, we did a complete dump and refill last April as the TDS/CYA were through the roof. Now my CYA has climbed, according to the pool store they aren't able to provide me with a "correct" number since their test only goes to 100, they can only estimate, it could be way higher they said...Anyway here are my numbers....I know I need to get a different test kit for myself in order to provide more information, as for now, the pools stores kit it more informational than my own....
We are thinking of dumping half the water in order to bring down the CYA. Please Help, I don't even want to talk to them anymore...They are the fourth pool store we have visited in the past year....I'm ready to suck my thumb and rock in a corner........
