This sounds like a great forum. We have been struggling with our pool this year with Leslie's Pool Supply - after dealing with algae issues and cloudy water we finally have a clear pool but we're going through chlorine like crazy and Leslie's has no answer for us. I hope you can help us. I ordered a test kit. Ironically I was testing daily and Leslie's talked me into making it easy by testing and adding chemicals 1-2 per week which is when our issues began. For now I am working on getting the chlorine level to where it should be (I finally got it up there last night and was almost out again today). When the kit arrives I will start with your program.
Since I am new to this method should I start with testing the CYA? I can almost guarantee it will be high as we have been using chlorine with a conditioner in it and have not drained any water (other than normal evaporation) for some time as that adds metals to our pool and causes more chlorine burn up. Thanks!
