My brand new pool was just fired up today and I just wanted to get some thoughts on what to do. I've been reading up for a week or so on this site and purchased a TF-100 test kit and only tested the PH and chlorine so far. PH is off the chart high and no chlorine, but from what I've read that is expected.
The guy who turned on the pump put 1 gallon of muriatic acid in and I tested about 6 hours after that and put another gallon in. He told me to go buy some chlorine tabs and put in the Nature 2 chlorinator, but I put 1 gallon of bleach in instead and don't intend to use the N2 system. I went to Home Depot and Lowes and only saw germicidal bleach, it looked like the basic bleach so I got a gallon and will go to Walmart and look tomorrow. Anyone know if the germicidal is the same?
Are there any other tests I should be doing now or anything else I should be adding to it?
