Hello all. New pool owner and member here. Fantastic site. Plan on doing the maintenance myself. I have the time and inclination. The builder left me with a basic kit that tests PH and Chlorine. I've had the water tested weekly by the local pool supply company in addition to the daily testing I perform. I do plan on getting the Taylor K2006 soon and no I don't fully trust the tests the supply company has done. Two questions for now if I may beg your indulgence. Right now I am using muriatic acid for ph (which seems to keep wanting to rise) and for chlorine I have the Jumbo Tabs (Trichloro-s-triazetrione) 99% and Chlor Brite for shocking if needed. Pool temp has been 62-64 degrees. My chlorine is at 3 and ph 7.8 1) Do the Jumbo-Tabs raise CYA levels? I just brought a boat load of this stuff to stock up for the summer, along with the Chlor Brite and acid. 2) I stumbled on the BBB method of maintaining pools, which lead me to this forum. Can I switch from the Tabs/Chlor-brite to liquid chlorine? I asked the pool supply person and of course his answer was an emphatic NO.
