Hi Everyone (I love smilies!)
So we have a new pool!
I'm excited to do the BBB Testing.
So let's get some information shall we?
Pool: Intex Ultra Frame 16x48
According to Intex's website it's 5,061 gallons.
It came with a filter cartridge. I do not know about the pump, I couldn't find the information on Intex's website
It's a vinyl liner also.
Now, for the water.
This is the first fill and the little wants to go swimming! I thouroughly read the BBB method 4 times, so I'm trying to not ask a question that if I read I could have answered myself!
I tested my PH and it's at 7.2. However, the site said that there may not be chlorine. However, I tested Chlorine and it's at 3.4. This is just with the red and yellow drop test. I'm awaiting ordering the test kit (Taylor k-2600?). I am on my way to get my water tested at the pool store to see if I can get more complete results to post.
So, my question is. What do I do now??! I think I might be having issues with the pool calculator, because it's not giving me how much bleach I need to add or anything else. Oh and I have lots of bleach (13 gallons, 5 boxes of mule team borax, 10 boxes of baking soda, bottle of 60% algecide, and some other chemicals, I'll get back to you on what they are! Oh and chlorine 3" tablets
Ok, I shall return with my water results, and hopefully have some much better information for you! If you need to know anything else, please ask!
(This is how I feel right now with the kids wanting me to finish the pool so they can swim )
