    Welcome to TFP!!!

    For us to be able to make any recommendations, we need reliable test results from one of the Recommended Test Kits. Pool store results, like you posted, have proven repeatedly to be inaccurate and unreliable.

    Welcome to TFP!

    We can definitely help you get your pool under control. +1 on getting a great test kit. I have used the TF100 from TFTestkits.net for over 3 years to maintain my pool.

    Re: Pebble tec pool

    Having my pool 10 years, Finally after spending $250 in one month on my pool (Leslies would be around $400) at the local pool supply I found this group. So now I have total control of my pool, cleaner looking than ever and the cost is way down. So my advice is get one of the recommended test kits and learn the proper care from day one. I'll be honest I was skeptical of what I was reading in this forum after 10 years of pool store suggestion, well I'm sure happy I followed TFP advice. BTW Leslies is one place to stay away from.
