Oh just curious how mush do you all spend on your pool chemicals each year.

I am at $100 so far and that is for Salt I don't expect to spend more then 200 for the year.

Well it look pretty much like the Salt cell is dying but it will hopefully make it to the end of the season. I am ordering the cell and will have it ready to go in. Need to add 2 small bags of shock $10 for them had the water tested PH was out of whack be no where near where it was before some other stuff out of whack too but nothing like before the salt went in I did need $150 in stabilizer PH reducer but that was a little more then expected but as the guy said it most likely cause of the weak Salt Cell.

SO I'm $260 in chemical and salt into the pool this season I could have shopped around and got the chemicals cheaper but I'm lazy.

How much have you spent so far this year on your pool chems?

YES,... YOU CAN!(sort of)
Every year when I go to the pool store with the sample, they come up with an AMAZING list of stuff I need. After having the same water in the pool(topped off only by rain, when needed) for 15+ years since the liner replace, I replaced about 1/3 to 1/2 of the water. It will probably cause a $50. one time spike in my water bill, but A) I saved at least three times that by not buying chemicals, and B) the water is cleaner, feels better, and C)is more reposnsive to chemicals, when needed(requiring less). I see why the pool stores tell you NEVER change your water( I was taught to preach this rhetoric when I worked in a pool store,too), Their sales would plummet! If you change your water, be careful to not go below a level that would compromise the structure of the pool. This is why I only changed LESS THAN HALF of my water at one time.Meanwhile,...I'm gonna dive back in!
