I built a new home and pool and moved in December 2014. First time pool owner and struggling to get a handle on keeping the pool algae free since June this year. I'm glad I came across TPC as I have concluded that pool shop testing is pretty much a "hit and miss" affair and I have spent hundreds of dollar recently and getting no where.
I read through most of pool school and getting ready to follow the TPC recommendations.
As with other Aussie members getting a decent test kit proved difficult. I chased up the links provided for the TFT-100 test kits but not available here and the USA makers are unable to supply me.
I have ordered the Taylors k-2006c kit from a USA supplier and hope to get it in2 weeks.
I am looking forward to learning lots and having a great, clean and usable pool as at the moment I'm not liking my pool as I'm spending more time cleaning rather then in it!
