    Re: New Pool in a week

    Thanks,,
    I,m the proud owner of a TF100 test kit so good to go there, The pool has yet to be opened from a Michigan winter. water under the pool cover looks decent
    I can see the ledge in deep end appears to be lots of leaves in bottom of pool.
    The pool cover has a good foot of water on the top of it and a hundred tadpoles or so.
    I plan on draining water above cover first along with scooping out the wildlife population.
    I can then test water first to see what I got.

    Then after that I,m Clueless and so New,,,

    So What due I look out for first ???
    Thanks in Advance.. love the site and the idea of using BBB. Looking forward to get started.

    Welcome to tfp, jp5touring

    With that kit in hand you will be dangerous to anything growing in that pool
    TFP Expert who uses Pool School and my TF100 test kit along with PoolMath for my: Round 11K gallon AGP with deep end, 20" sand filter, Matrix 1hp 2spd, 6 2ftX20ft solar panels (and solar cover!), Intex SWCG (copper bars disconnected) and a Rubadub hot tub (chlorine). The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
