Janice here from Texas. Recently retired and gifted myself a pool. Intex above ground 12×24×52 rectangular pool. Sand filter, 1.5 horsepower. After ready on this site I ordered my TP100 test kit. Hubby and I installed the pool ourselves and then added a deck on 2 sides. Plan to surround pool but have to save some money first. Only regret I wish I had found this site before I purchased the pool. Would have felt better informed. Had one issue when started as pool turned brown when chlorine was added. Too much metal in well water.
Test kit arrived late today and I conducted the test. Just know this was early evening after a very hot day here are my numbers...
CYA <20. Not zero but turned cloudy at top of container.
Posted in other forum wondering which do I tackle first then second. Assume FC then CYA then TA. Or can I leave TA alone?
