We JUST bought a big, 18'x4' round pool, and it just dawned on me, that if we use clorine in the pool, we will not be organic anymore!!!! We have an organic dairy farm, and our calves are down the hill from our pool. If we drain the water there at the end of the year, we will have to wait 3 years to put calves there again! YIKES!!! We have not put anything in it yet, as it is not level and need to level it out first, but I thought about it and thought I would post.
My thought was to add CS water daily- or as needed after several days of adding it daily. It's a plastic pool, and it is in the sun, BUT, my mom uses CS water in her bird bath, and she said that it doesn't get green anymore, nor does it get slimy. So..... just wondering if it could be used in a pool. I don't know that we have any other options!?!?!?! It does have a filter- a cartridge filter, so I don't know if that will filter out the particles or not?? OMG!!!! I can't beleive we paid $225 for a pool and didn't even think of that first!?!?!?!?!! If anyone has any thoughts on something else that can be used, or if you know if CS will work, PLEASE let me know!!!!!! Also, I don't know how many gallons it holds, but how much do you think would have to be added (CS) would be appreciated. I can make a gallon at a time, so.... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
