My wife and I bought our first pool this year and we are very green. I've got a couple questions,on my pump I can change from swg to just filtering. Is there any reason or when should I change to just filtering? My TF-100 will be here this week, going by the test stripes from Intex my ph is above 8 I'm guessing. We were at Walmart and I purchased some conditioner and ph minus. Is there anything I should do before I can get a good test done, the water is very clear.
