Okay this will be my third year having a pool. It is a 40 yesr old sylan pool and we are having it renovated starting this week by anthony and sylvan. We bought the house with it and for the last two years i have been using leslies. So with the renovation coming up and i will be a plaster with quartz finish now instead of painted concrete i figured it was best to come back on this board and start reading the pool school. I will be needing your guys help as it seems it is best to do your own testing and adding chemicals from what i read on tfp.
So far let me see if i have this right, it is best to use bleach/liquid chlorine then any of the other granular or powder chlorine?
Also 3" pucks are not needed if you use bleach so you do not raise the cya and make the chlorine inaffective?
Also i wasnt sure which is the best test kit i should buy from the comparison chart and i will need help learning how to test. Any links are much appreciated. I will be sticking around this time as i want to protect our pool investment and learn to do it myself with the help of tfp. Thanks guys.
