    Newbee

    New to the pool school! It seems like the place to be! New pool this June. I have not shocked after pool company set it up and got swim ready. OTO test and PH have always been fine. water sparkles. Do I leave well enough alone? Just ordered a Taylor K 2006 kit before I found this sight for CYA testing etc. When it arrives what is the most important test to perform. Sorry for the dumb questions.
    Thanks Mike

    Hey, Mike,

    Welcome to the forum!!! Sounds like you have been taking great care of your pool.

    It would be a good idea to perform ALL the tests in the K2006 (it has CYA testing and is a great kit) and post them up here on the forum.

    You'll probably be encouraged to do a little tweaking but crystal clear water is the goal and you're there!!

    It is good practice to log the results of your tests. Keeping records of test results and the chemicals you add, what and how much and when, can tip you off to slow changes that need attention.

    All of them are important. Especially when you're just starting to use the kit - you want to establish a baseline. Then, when TA suddenly leaps and you haven't added anything, you'll realize there's something wrong with the test, not the pool. Just as an example. It happened to me the other day, when I opened a new bottle of R-009. And I knew better. But I digress.

    You need all the numbers to enter into Pool Calculator, so it can calculate CSI, which is important to prevent concrete decay or scaling.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
