Let me get it out so I can "talk" calmly. ARRRGH ok ..better. We have a 12x24 intex pool. We were doing pretty good with the cheepy test kit until the 4 days we were out of town. Then the green goblin came and took over. Finally found TFP ordered a test kit. Between the horrendous rain of 1 week, power outages and the already growing green monster........ we decided to drain the pool. Scrubbed the sides, got 2 jugs of chlorine from pool supply........ then once water level was appropriate.....plugged in pump........it was dead.
Went to buy new pump at local independent store. they are great but they wanted us to bring either pics or sand filter so we could get correct replacement pump and attachments so we did not have to make another trip.....which is at least 45 minutes from my house on a good day. That was yesterday. Today as we were about to drain and load, for giggles I plugged it in.... it worked. So at this point my pool is filled and has 2 jugs of chlorine in it.. I have started doing the testing with my tf-100 kit. My chlorine at noon was 2 it is now Zero! I tested it twice no three times to check myself. So I thought I could get this done and something beginning balanced today......right ........between the pool, 2 household autos acting up, and multiple other things... I am ready to throw in the towel....but I need my pool...... it is my sanctuary after a rough day at work
Here are my current readings.
Found some of the chlorine tablets in the pool supplies and dropped those into the floater thing. I don't know if I should SLam or try and juggle getting this right. I have some granular stabilizer, but otherwise out of chlorine til tomorrow. Pool is clear with slight orangish haze......but we are on well water so this is the norm.
Where do I start? Is it beer thirty yet?
