Hi all, first post here, just wanted to say hi, and share my experiances thus far.
I bought the home in Feburary, I never asked when the last time the pool was used but after taking the mesh top off I assume its been atleast 2 years. I first siphoned out about just down tot he floor of the shallow end, and refilled with fresh tap water just to make myself feel like I was doing somtihng. I took a sample to the pool store and they gave me a sack of stuff to get my TA up a bit, and 4 gals of liquid 12%. I added and retested the following week, Chlorine was down arround 0 so we added 4 moore and it started to stabilize a bit and the water cleared up somewhat. I'm still waiting on some parts so I can vac the floor it seems to have a good bit of blackish crud down there. Ever since I've been adding some clorox from BJ's weekly to keep the levels up until I can give it a good cleaning. Is there anything I'm missing, or any recommendations given the info below? I've got some time yet to get it right, it supposed to snow tomorrow.
Anyway here are my current numbers (Taylor k-2006)
(This is my first test I've done with this kit)
CH 90 (This may be a bit off, as I was adding swirling a little bit spilled)
When I get a few minutes I'll post up some progress photos.
