My new pool hopefully will be plastered and filled next week. 4 months & sadly missed the 4th of July.
Been reading everything on TFP and & posting mostly on my construction page. Thanks TFP and everyone especially KimKats that have followed my build.
Anyway it's time to get ready for Testing & Balancing as I received my TF-100 Test Kit and SpeedStir.
Practiced by testing the Tap Water and here are the results:
A month ago I had the tap water tested at a Pool Store:
The only result that matches is the PH so I'll disregard their other readings and stay away from the Pool Store.
The PH is high but manageable. But looks like the TA at 170 will always be a problem when adding water to pool.
Note that I have plenty of aeration available to work on this later.
CH is low but the new plaster should bring that up without adding anything.
Any thoughts & comments appreciated. I'll be posting my test readings after the startup by PB.
