Hi Everyone, I have been lurking for awhile, but I finally got my Taylor test kit so I thought I would introduce myself finally. By the way, the test kit is amazing. It is a bit intimidating at first, but I think it is just what I needed. Anyhoo, I live in Princeton, WV and finally got my pool last summer in late July. I didn't do much last year with it as it was so late in the season, but this year I am trying to do everything right.
When I got the pool last summer, we set it up and filled it up (Intex Ultra Frame, 12 x 24 with a SWG.) Things went well last year and for winter we drained it some added some closing chemicals from intheswim and covered it with a tarp. I uncovered the pool last weekend and to my surprise, the water was CLEAR!!!
So that is my pool in a nutshell and I'm sure I will have lots of questions for all of you chemistry geniuses I look forward to reading about all of your pools!
