Well hello everyone.
While I'm waiting for my test kit to arrive in the mail I was wondering what I should be doing. I don't have the www hooked up at my house yet (just moved in) so I can't give you specs of my pool yet. I would like to think it's below 10k though. It's pretty small. I have finally got my filtration system up and running and my water looks like a pretty pea soup color with a slight brownish tinge to it. I did get my water tested but I don't have the sheets on me at this time. All I can say is that my CYA is at 0. Is there anything you can recommend that I do until my test kit comes in? Should I buy some bleach? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have already bought some chlorine tabs and some 73% super shock but I'm a little scared to use them yet. I do have a cheap test kit and strips that I found in the crawl space. My next step is to read that thread to figure out how to use them.
