Installed our pool last weekend before i found out about this awesome site.So far after filling with chorinated town water.I added i-3" puck and a half package of shock to the pool.I tested today using the HTH testing kit the results are below.
chlorine =8 or higher
ph = 8.2
th=.6ppm is this correct it took 6 drops divided by 10
I took the cover off to out gas some of the chlor. as this seems too high.But the pool does not have a high chlorine smell.
