Show Notes Chapter Markers

One popular pool hack that went viral recently focuses on how to keep your swimming pool properly balanced. The video showcases a pool owner dumping a cup of baking soda in her pool and states that doing so every other day helps to keep her pool properly balanced. Something about that suggestion didn't quite jibe with what we know about maintenance so we brought in Rudy Stankowitz, a recognized expert on pool care, to weigh in with his two cents. If you've seen this pool hack on social media, you may want to listen to this episode first!
