We just moved into a home with a pool and it is our families first time owning a pool. The equipment and pool are as they were when we moved in. Have been having water tested at Leslies (which after reading a bit on this site, i should be doing myself). The pool had a floating chlorinator but with the auto pool cover i read that if the floating chlorinator sits in one spot under the cover, it can damage the cover. So i was recommended by Leslies to install an offline chlorinator which i purchased....but have not installed yet. That is how i came across this site searching about the install of the chlorinator. Now im seeing many (if i understand right) not using chlorine at all but bleach instead. So my question is should i proceed with the offline chlorinator or go a different route? Any other advice you may have on pool care for a first timer, id more than appreciate. Learning as we go here.... Thanks in advance.
