I don't know anything about pools either. I have a wal-mart pool. So here is my question that maybe someone can answer... I don't know how to test for FC according to my handy dandy test thing which only has pH mine is 6.8, my CL is 1.0, and my BR is 2.2. ( I test with the tester that has two slots, one measures CL and BR, the other pH) So if I get one of those floating chlorine things will my FC be alright. Also I did shock and stabilize my pool with chemicals but I don't know what to do now. I assume I need some 20 mule borax?? Also if I don't want to do the chlorine how do I go about using the bleach? I really appreciate your help on this one.
