have spend a few days reading everything I can on this awesome site.
here is what's going on.
20000 gal in ground with new plaster first of 2015
we have been having fits with some staining at various places so have been wire brushing the you know what.
we constantly seem to have an algae problem and we have went thru several boxes of your standard leslies pool shock.
anyway the pool looks pretty good but I think it is on the edge of ruin.
here is what I got this afternoon using the Taylor Technologies K-1004 - DPD Deluxe Test Kit
here is the results today.
total chl 1
total alk 110.
I am not exacts on these results as I have a tough time with this kit and the colors.
The kit is old, say at least 10 years old so I probably need to order a different kit.
