Hi all, I was torn where to ask this (Just Getting Started or in here) so here it is.
I bought a house with a pool (first time around pool maintenance) and at the end of last season, it needed a cover and bought a Merlin Mesh so as you can imagine...It was pretty green in the beginning. Well after reading and reading here, I cleaned it up within 10 days. It would have been faster but I needed to replace all of the hole filled DE grids. Now I am at the point where I actually think I got it close, but I just want to check in here and get some opinions on what if anything I should do next.
I purchased and am learning how to test with the Taylor K-2006, and here are my results.
Saturation Index -0.3
The pool has a row of 5 ~25 foot White Pines on one side that shade the pool in the early morning till around 9am and after that it's sunshine all day. I currently have the solar cover on to try and keep from losing the temp at night since it is still getting cool here in Central New Jersey at night.
I would appreciate any feedback you can offer on my test results.
Just wanted to add, other than the Algaecide 60, it has been all BBB
