How does everyone add their chlorine to the pool? a pool professional told me to add the chlorine - calcium hypochlorite granules- to the skimmer. when I did that the pool remained cloudy for several days. then he told me to add the chlorine directly into the pool. said something about because it is fiberglass pool wouldn't harm it. so I did that and still cloudy for several days. now I just want to know what is the normal standard way to add chlorine to the pool.

If the water is hard (calcium hardness >400ppm), think about switching to liquid chlorine.

When using cal hypo try dissolving it in a bucket of water and pouring it around the pool. The predissolved chlorine will distribute more evenly and quickly, and shouldn't leave the water cloudy after 12-24 hrs.
