Hi all, so glad I found your site. Just had our pool put in during last fall and opened it about a month ago. I was following pool stores recommendations, until I found your site. We live in South Lebanon, Ohio, jut north of Cincinnati. Have a 20x40 rectangle vinyl pool with 8 foot deep end and 3 foot shallow end. Sand filter, pump running 24/7, automatic chlorination set at 3 using 1" trichlor tabs. Just received the test kit recommended here and this is my first test results.
Calcium 320, did the method for copper, since I put algecide with copper in about 2 weeks ago, stopped after green hair and reading this site.
Ph between 7.5 and 7.7
Pool water looks great. How do these numbers look? Do I need to run the pump 24/7 (pool store recommendation)?
Thanks for the advice.
