I'm trying to help a friend convert to the BBB method. She plans on ordering her test kit tonight so for today we used mine to get starting numbers.
Her pool is kidney shaped with a deep end for diving. How to I determine pool size and/or gallons? I roughly figure it to be about 12' wide by 24' long. It's 3' in the shallow end and she said the deep end is 12'. I'm wondering if the deep end footage is correct tho. Seems it might be closer to 8'. When I swam in it a few years ago I don't remember it being 12'. That's the only thing I'm unsure of.
Right now it's bluish green and definitly not clear so I know we need to shock but I need gallons first. Also, it's an older pool so I'm not so sure if it's plaster or gunite. It's been painted over year after year. So not quite sure how to handle TA and CH. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
