So, after debating whether to spend the entire day figuring out how to hard plumb my swimming pool, I opted to go to HD and grab some sealing tape and a few new fittings to stop my pool hoses from leaking. Success!
I have my marsh circulating now, so I will let that run for a few hours and then test the water. In the mean time, I will try and rescue as many tadpoles as I can and provide them freedom in the creek out back.
I'm guessing the first thing I will need to do is raise my PH because when I took the reading yesterday prior to any circulation it was about 9.0.
I have a K-2006 kit and enough reagent to last me until my refills get here. Should I add any bleach and start brushing the pool at this time?
