It seems like every year I fight to keep algae out of my pool. This year I thought I had resolved the problem but now the algae has returned. When I started the year my chlorine owes broke so I used crystals and sprinkled them directly into the pool. I did not have any algae problems until I purchased a new Chlorinator and placed it on line about 3 weeks ago. The algae has returned. I ran across this web site and started the Slamming process yesterday. Already this morning I can see a difference. I plan on continuing the SLamming until I kill all the algae. After emptying my wallet at the pool supply store and finding this web site here are my questions:
1. What kind of test kit should I purchase I see the Taylor 100 kit mentioned in a lot of post and also the 2006 kit. I just want to make sure I get one that will allow me to service my pool correctly.
2. I don't understand why the Chlorinator does not work. Why do they sell so many of these if they don't work. Is there a way they will work?
3. I have shut the Chlorinator off for now and I am using liquid bleach. The question is is there an easy way to dispense the liquid bleach?
