Hi. I am having a heck of a time getting chlorine to hold in my pool. I have approximately a 33,000 gallon pool and have added approximately 140 pounds of granular chlorine so far since opening my pool at the end of may. I would welcome any suggestions or recommendations. Thank you!

Hi, welcome to TFP! I have some questions for you. What is the main ingredient of the chlorine you used? How does your water look? Could you post a complete set of test reports?

Hi...thank you! The main active ingredient is Sodium dichloro-s-triazinetroine Hydrated. It is finally clear...took a couple of weeks to get it that way as it was very cloudy for that long. Test reports? Please advise.

WOW. 140 pounds of Dichlor would push your CYA above 250....
