Hello TFP! I've been lurking a while and am now ready to wow you all with my awesome!
Well, as soon as I figure out how to awesome. I just got my first pool relined and filled. I'm going to set the skimmer and return tonight, get the pump running then start working on chems. I have received my TF-100 kit and have tried to familiarize myself with the testing procedures. Is there a post that spells out how to do each test for the following-instructions-challenged? Or does it just come from experience/trial-n-error?
I'll post a couple of pics to whet your appetites. Oh, and my neighbor, a happy 6yr Baquacil user, is already giving me grief for choosing chlorine. Help me prove him wrong! To his credit, he's amazing at working on pools. He's the guy that's not bald (hint: I have a bandana on).
I have so many questions, but all the answers really hinge on me being able to test reliably. Basically, and correct me if I'm wrong, I need to figure out my CYA so I can figure out my FC shock value. Then I need to keep it at shock level until I get a stable overnight reading on FC, correct?
I'll try to get a full set of tests posted in the next couple of days. I'll be busy tonight with the skimmer, pump, etc...
With that, enjoy the pictures.
Fill 'er up!
Full of WIN!
