there is a serious drought. I do not want to dump 400 gallons of water into my yard until I absolutely have to. I am in month 7, used dichlor on exit of daily uses for first couple months until CYA spiked, then just bleach,along with weekly dose of Spa perfect. Chemistry has been stable, but it get a little stinky sometimes which I now realize is played out chlorine.. combined?
Sooo... I started using Leslie Fresh 'n Clear oxidizing shock, which I hope is attacking the accumulated byproducts of this chemistry experiment and letting the bleach do it's cootie-killing job.
Is this a legitimate approach?
And should I switch off days, bleach one day, oxidizer the next?
The FC seems to stick around longer since I started using the oxidizer, but it's still a little stinky. a different kind of stinky. Wife reports that it hurts lungs. Am i soaking her in toxic soup?
