I am about to order my test kit & I'm looking for advice.
I'm planning to order the TF-100 kit, XL option for the kit, and the SpeedStir.
I don't close on the house for another 3-4 weeks, but I want to have a test kit in hand when the time comes. I've never owned or maintained a pool before. Any other reagents I should go ahead and order refills for? Any other do-dads you guys have found useful or wished you'd ordered sooner?
The pool is currently an enclosed black swamp. The seller is opening the pool prior to closing. I don't know much about the past maintenance of the water other than there are several buckets of pucks in the pool room and an inline feeder. There are several bags/ buckets of some sort of chemicals to raise the TA. I assume the previous owner has had trouble maintaining a normal TA level (perhaps from tri-chlor use?)
