I thought I would post my initial results. I am going to Anthony Sylvan Pool center tomorrow to bring a sample as well, to double check myself.
I purchased the TF100 "XL" test kit. This is my first time using any pool test kit. I have an engineering background, but that was long ago!
My numbers, as far as I can tell are as follows:
Chlorine (don't know if it's FC, CC, or TC):
Tested positive for Calcium. (This is the only test I did not understand, so no specific numbers)
There is still some leaf matter in the pool. This should be finally gone tomorrow morning. There was quite a bit when I first opened. I think the lawn guys (fired now for other reasons) blew a lot under the cover.
I used the Anthony Sylvan Pool opening kit, for the size of my pool, including "Quick Shock", "Pro 60 Algaecide", and "Les Iron".
I also added what I believe to be the correct amount of DE to the nearest skimmer to the filter. But I did this after running the pool filter and above chefs for about 4 hours. (I opened the filter first, and it looked nice inside!)
MY TEST RESULTS, above, are approximately 24 hours after the chems were added.
Heeeeeere we GOOoooo!!
