    Shocking my pool tonight

    So my CC has crept up to something over 0.5 ppm and I decide to bring FC to shock level. For a CYA of 50 that's 20 FC.. we plug that into the calculator and.. 3 JUGS OF 10%?! That's going to cost me $12 in bleach!

    ...and then I remember the pool store sold me a bunch of **** for $80+ that didn't do anything to fix my problems and actually made it worse.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
