OK where to start, this is my first pool. Please don't kill me yet!! I think i have all the information asked for in the school.
First i want to say thank you to everyone here! Great Information and details.
I found this site a little over a month ago while trying to get my new to me pool re plastered.
I have used many of the suggestions and ideas already.
If i didn't find this forum i would have been at the mercy of the pool store = not good, those guys need to come here and get schooled before working there.
I have a new TF-100 Thanks Dave, these are my first readings, before i was using Aquacheck 7.
FC= 7 6
PH= 7.5 7.5
TA= 150 100
CH= 240 260
CYA= 55 40
CSI Says 0.3-0.16 on pool Calc,, Troublefreepool.com settings,, using bleach
The heater and the IC-40 are not powered on.
I have been brushing everyday, and vacuuming with a brush.
This is my first time using the test kit, so i am a little concerned about the accuracy, did it change? one more drop, etc
If i might ask?
1. When using the speed stir do i fill to the line with or without the mixing bean, my above tests were done to the line then added the bean.
2. my water has always looked good and clear, can see the bottom.nothing noticeably wrong, Now I am Starting to see what looks like scale, stains, discoloration on the bottom, it only seems to be on the shallow end.
what should i do next before i do the wrong thing?
i will post a few pics tomorrow, too dark now.
Are there any members in town?
