    Chlorinating

    Got my CYA at about 50 and don't want to raise it any more. Want to stop using tablets. If I use liquid chlorine, do I have to add it by hand every day or so? Is there an auto chlorinator that will do it as needed?

    Yes, manually. Or do a search for liquidator or stenner pump.

    After a couple weeks of regular testing and dosing, you'll know your pool's personality and appetite, and will be able to guess your test results with amazing accuracy before you run the tests. It can get down to a couple minutes a day, if that, to dose the pool manually.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thanks so much, like the dentist analogy.

    I cant be home everyday so what I do is get the chlorine above the max from the calculator, which mine is a 10.
    In the middle of summer like it is, I loose about 2-2.5 a day.
    So I can go from not adding chlorine for 2 days and still be fine.
    I usually add every other day.

    Yes, SWG! Salt is the way to go. Makes it's own chlorine. Read up on it. There's also a SWG forum here. I converted and highly recommend it.
