I have a brand new pool. 1 year old. I have an in-line chlorinator and Ozone. My pool only needs to be around a 1-2 ppm. I use these Clorox tabs and it doesn’t work. Every week I check it and there’s no chlorine and I have algae. My CYA is 90 so I’ve decided to switch to liquid chlorine without CYA. It’s been really hot and my pool takes sun all day but why aren’t my levels staying up. I can’t figure it out and I’m very frustrated. Any advice would be much appreciated

Add what kit you are using to your signature when you fill it out.

We do not use pool store tests for guidance. So post up your test results from your own kit.

You need to keep your FC much higher than 1-2ppm. Don't believe the ozone hype. You need to follow the FC/CYA Chart to ensure the water stays safe and clear. Of course at this point you should replace water and follow the SLAM Process.
