    Nothing but love!

    Hello all of you awesome people who make up the TFP forum!

    I have been a lurker on this forum since 2011 when I purchased our first seasonal above ground pool. I am proud to say nothing from the pool store has ever been put into our pool, thanks to all of the advice I have technically stolen from everyone else's threads. I am 100% sure my husband turns red when I mention pool school in public lol.

    I thought it was about time I started to engage and give back to this amazing online community. Thanks again everyone

    Re: Nothing but love!

    Hi kimkats,

    Yay! I received my first replay from one of my favorite people onT FP You are always so helpful and caring.

    I test my water every evening (and sometimes in the morning lol) with the FT-100 and I write them down in my pool notebook so that I can track any major changes and patterns.

    If I need to make any adjustments I input everything into the pool calculator and go from there.

    I have only used bleach, borax, baking soda and CYA (when needed) my TA and PH stay pretty stable. I also have a SWG that keeps my chlorine levels stable I usually just supplement with bleach when needed.

    My current reading are:
    FC: 7 (I have a three year old I think she may pee in the pool a bit so I target a little high and we swim daily)
    CC: 0
    PH: 7.5
    CYA: 50 (salt water)
    TA: 80

    My daughter also requires that we throw in a quarter everyday so that she can do her own pool test lol she reads if it lands on heads or tails but learning to read off the date.
