just finished installing our new doughboy, 21 x 41 AG pool - our first and wow, we are excited! as we are not yet up to TFP speed, we took a day one water sample to the pool store - the water in the pool came entirely from the city/county public drinking water system. the pool store test results:
Total CL .4
Free CL 0
Tot Alkalinity 42
she gave us the following items to put in the pool in this order, 30 min apart -
12 lbs Adjust Alkalinity
1 1/2 lbs Adjust pH
5 gal 10% CL
Stabilizer 8 lbs (i did not take the algacide)
we put everything in 2 days ago ... the water looks / feels clear / great and we have been swimming both days.
tested w/ a Pentair test kit (only one in the store - we have ordered the Taylor TF-100):
alkalinity ... tried twice and it seems to come in at 150 ppm ?
so ... how do we get to TFP methods from here?
thanks for the awesome site.
