New pool owner 14x28 in ground shallow end is 3ft deep end around 6 ft. I have spent a ton of money on chemicals over the last few weeks trying to get my levels in order. A week after the pool opened I took my water in for testing - the cyanuric acid was 150 and all my numbers were somewhat off. Another $50 spent and out the door I go - immediately I started researching this site and ordered the k-2006 test kit (which hasn't arrived yet). The pool company told me I had a 10k gallon pool but using the online calcs it shows me having a 13,200 gallon pool. I wonder if all of my numbers were so blatantly off because of the pool store testing my water as a 10k gallon?
Either way when I get my test kit I want to start using the BBB so I can save money. At this rate I will be spending $100 + a month just to hopefully keep the pool in check.
I have read through some of the information here but was wondering should I just post my numbers and seek advice on how to get started, or should I use some type of conversion method to get started?
