A first-time pool owner here in Atlanta, GA with a closing question:
A few rookie mistakes...like shocking the pool once-a-week with dichlor & trusting the "free water testing" and "advice" from a chain pool store...has got our pool to this state, according to my K-2006 test kit:
I now know, because of this website, that a pair of 50% drain-&-refills are in our pool's future to get the CH and CYA levels down to more realistic levels. Pool closing is scheduled for mid-October. Should I do the drain-&-refills now, or wait until I open the pool next year ?
