Hello and thanks in advance.
Where to start ? I can't seem to keep any level of any chemical to stay in line with anything. Other than the total hardness of 1000 ppm. Ph TA swing like monkeys! Free chlorine ? Omg its not free unless its free to disappear, where does it go
I'm new here and stuck on Leslie's pool supplies stupid. No more !
Would someone anyone please tell me where to start I've maintained my pool or tried for 4 years now. Waisted kids college tuition at that freaking supply store.
Do I start with PH. TA. CYA ? My pool is open all year I guess ? About a month ago we received 8 inches or rain over a 10 day period and since then the algae began its battle with me and seems to have an appetite for chlorine huge appetite, both free or total disappear overnight my water is slightly milky algea growth seems to be under controll and cleaned out visably ? my PH and TA change like my wife's mind as well as CYA ABC or any abbreviation you choose!!
Please where do I start to get something to balance? Pump is running 24/7 back washed several times average 3 lbs of shock each day for the past 2 weeks last night I started the bleach 10% added a gallon waited 30 minutes before testing at which point all levels seem OK? Sorta! Tested again 1st thing this morning and
These are test strip result averages as I've tested repeatedly daily...I purchased a new test kit today pdp pool care yes from leslies .. i will order one of the endorsed kits ASAP but I wanted to start with something to practice with. Please point me to any beginning point that might start to balance any of the above. Please before I dive to the bottom of the pool where I've installed a scratch and sniff for the grand kids I don't like jk its for the wife thanks and sorry for the rant .... sincerely Chris
