Topic Split off to form new thread.
I am a new Intex pool owner also. Did some reading but still confused.
I went to a Leslie's (http://www.lesliespool.com/) with a bottle of my water shortly after filling it a few weeks ago.
They told me that pH and TA is supposed to be high in a vinyl pool as it helps make the vinyl last?
They sold me Chlor Brite Step 2 Sanitizer (http://www.lesliespool.com/browse/Home/ ... 00/I/12055)
And Some AquaChek yellow strips (http://www.lesliespool.com/browse/Home/ ... 10/I/18684)
Now I am somewhat colorblind, so reading these silly colors is challenging.
It appears that my pool is not maintaining Free Chlorine very well.
Also, I just bought and started using the 12' Intex Solar Cover to help keep it warm, but i read that sunlight can affect FC.
So if anyone could help?
