I recently purchased an Intex Ultra frame 14x48 AGP. This is my practice pool while I'm making repairs to the existing 27' pool that came with the house I purchased.
My girlfriend wanting to use to pool immediately (she won the argument) so I filled the pool with municipal water and we swam over the weekend with no water treatment. Now that I have received my TF-100 XL test kit, I am able to address proper pool care.
I got nervous last night and added 40 oz of 6% bleach to the clear water and ran the pump all night. This morning I had light green water - hopefully the bleach killing organics?
I hope the folks here can set me on the right path in pool care. My test result this afternoon are as follows:
FC = 0.5
CC = 0
TC = 0
TA = 100
CH = 40
CYA = 0? (I tested for -never turned cloudy- but none has been added, so 0?)
PH = 7.8
I think I need to head to the pool store for CYA but wanted to post the water test results so I do this right from now on. I have purchased: Borax, Bleach, and Muriatic acid.
Thank you for the assistance!
