    Welcome to the forum. How does your water look? Tell us what you are trying to accomplish.....clear up a murky pool?

    Re: new owner please help me

    Hello, I'm a new pool owner too, although it isn't set up yet. I'm not familiar with the aqua chem tester (except for their strips), so can't really help with how to run the tests, try looking at the manual that came with it. You should probably think about investing in either the Taylor-K2006 kit or the TF-100 kit so you can report test results that everyone knows are reliable. To get good help here you will need to be able to tell people what the levels of each of the tests/compounds described on the 'ABC's of Water Chemistry' page in the Pool School (big button at the top right). Don't let the word 'chemistry' scare you, it isn't that difficult to understand, and there are only 5 or 6 important numbers/levels to keep track of.
