It's been an interesting time. Last week i tried for the first time to maintain the swimming pool on my own.
What a delicate eco-system a pool creates. Just enough Ph, Alkalinity and Chlorine. Don't forget to deal with algie levels, etc....
So far, so good.
I have to check the chlorine level every few days to calibrate the flow from the chlorinator.
I also learned how to increase the PH and have a small warehouse of pool chemicals.
They certainly cost less than what my service was charging.
In a few weeks we'll see if it's been worth the effort.
One thing for sure is that you quickly learn how to use the test kit!
