Pools....A sucker's game.


I am looking for pool help. When I first bought a house with a pool, I ended up going to the local pool store for help and ended up with a trunk load of expensive chemicals. Over the years I kept doing so, thinking I was helping myself by purchasing all of my chemicals at the 30% off Spring Sale. pfft…

Then a few years back I figured out (don’t judge me, just help) to just buy Arm and Hammer Baking Soda at Sam’s Club to replace the expensive Bioguard alkalinity increaser - duh.

So know I found out I can use 20 Mule Team Borax for my ph increaser (we will get into the measurements later).

What else should I know. What do you use for your chlorine sticks, algicide, etc? Help me to reduce my pool maintenance costs, and other poor suckers out there like me.

As much work as a pool takes it brings my kids so much enjoyment all summer it is worth the trouble
