First time to own a pool and had some questions. I just finished installing a 21' round above ground pool myself, got the pump up and running today after getting the pool filled yesterday with city water, water level is 4' deep. I have 10,000 gallons in it +/- a few hundred. I added bleach to get my FC levels up based on the pool calculator numbers. Right now I only have AquaCheck test strips and the little test kit that came with my pool. So these numbers probably aren't that accurate but here they are.
Total Hardness = 250
Total Chlorine = 3-5 range (color is kinda in between on strip)
FC = 10 (test strip color)
pH = 7.2
TA = 80
CYA = 30-50 range
I picked the hottest week to do my first AGP install, heat index was over 105 everyday and I had a lot of work with very little help. You really find out quick who your true friends are....LOL
