Just wanted to say hello to everyone and thanks for all the information. I've been watching the site for about a year, reading pool school and learning all I can. Just filled my pool yesterday and I have to admit BBB is the best.
After filling I added enough cya in a sock to bring it up to 30 and enough bleach to bring FC to 6.
Yesterday evening test results were:
pH best guess 6.5 was too low for the test kit
CH did not test
CYA still in the sock
This evenings test
CH didn't test
Need to add some soda ash or borax to bring up pH and TA. The water is crystal clear.
