I'm new here but have been reading extensively. I've never cared for a pool before, but wanted to help my immediate family this year as the pool we all use is pretty green after opening.
From what I understand, they're plan is to use a shock and algaecide, but they don't test for CYA or much other than those cheap chlorine and ph tests.
I tried explaining to them the methods here, but was met with the idea that if we use chlorine we won't be able to swim for weeks while the algaecide will kill it in a couple days. Obviously wrong on several levels, but could someone point me somewhere or help me explain to them why the SLAM method will work better and faster?
