Construction has finally begun the other day and should be done in another 10 to 14 days. I have spent the last several weeks reading everything I can on this site. I am hoping that this whole pool chemistry thing isn't as complicated as it sounds. Although I now feel like I know more than my PB knows, and that scares me.
Okay heres my question. I plan on using my well to fill the pool when complete. I sent a sample with the PB to test the other day as I have not ordered my own test kit yet. The following are the results he gave me.
PH - 8.2
TA - 173
FC - 0.3
CH - 28
TDS - 500
He said they did not test for metals , but I know I have had the well tested before when we installed a filtration system and we did not have any at a level we needed to filter out. So not really sure exactly what they are.
And of course then comes the "you need x amount of lbs of this stabilizer, x lbs of algicide, ect... ect... "
Now I need the real answer on how to proceed in balancing my water when it comes time?
