I live close to Houston and I am really having trouble keeping from getting cloudy pool water due, I'm pretty sure, to the water temp. and not being able to keep up with chlorine. I have an 18' AG and I use 10-12% liquid bleach. I use a lot of liquid bleach, 40-60 ounces a day, and my CYA is 45. TA is 135 and pH is 7.5. I have started using a 60% algaecide to try to help. I have several questions,
1. Can you use too much of the algaecide to make it unsafe to swim?
2. Should I try to lower phosphates? The pool store guy says try it but I keep spending money and don't want to "try" something else.
3. Since I manually dose I'm probably letting the FC get a little low before the next dose. So my last question is this. Has anyone used the SolarChlor and if so, how many PPM FC can I expect at full load in my 7600 gallon pool from the SolarChlor?
