Yesterday, I got the equipment orientation for the new pool. First pool I've ever had, so until yesterday, I didn't even know how anything worked, valves, etc.
Last night, I turned on the pool light and started the water features - sheer descent and 2 water scuppers. My wife and daughter (along with my daughter's son - will be 2 in December) were in the pool enjoying it. They were really having a nice time.
And I'm sitting on the patio wondering what the water features were going to do to the pH. I was enjoying the atmosphere of the pool, etc, but I'm sure I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I wasn't so concerned about the pool chemistry.
This morning I ran a full battery of tests - pH went from about 7.5 two days ago to 7.6 today.
I think I'm going to enjoy it more, and worry less in the future! (sheesh)
I'm still a bit concerned about CH (Test kit is TF-100)
When the pool guy was out yesterday to do the orientation, he pulled out his test strips and said the CH was about 250. I still don't get anything close to that. I think today I'll be taking a sample to the pool store to see what they get. I'm almost convinced it's me.
