My wife and I have moved in with her recently widdowed mother who was never really involved in the pool maintanence and the CYA is probalby higher than my current test kit can measure (it reads 110, new kit on order) so I am anxious to get off the pucks fast.
Pool school says to slowly pour the bleach in front of a return which for most pools seems be always on, but in my pool the distributor (or wahtever its called) actuates each retun in turn for a minute or so. Am I supposed to wait for it to come on again, just pour it there any way or just slowly pour it as I walk around the perimiter? Maybe in the deep end over a return and next to the main drain? Or can I just slowly pour it in or near the (empty) skimmer?
I only intend to add bleach first thing in the morning or pretty late at night. So there is no chance that anyone will swim for several hours if that matters.
PS: I tried searching, but all my terms came back as too common.
