I just got my first pool and plan to set it up as soon as I have all the supplies I need.. And as soon as I really understand what I need. I ordered a test kit, a Taylor K-1004 (hopefully that has everything I need). Due to chlorine allergies I would like to try Bromine, but I'm not really clear on what amount I need. Looks like I can buy anywhere from 1 lb to 50 lb. Roughly how much would a 1500 gallon pool go through in , say, 3 months?
Are those floaty dispensers good for small pools, or are they more for hot tubs?
This pool adventure is a test for me. If I can figure this out and be responsible about caring for it I can upgrade my set up next year.
