Here we go! We bought a house with a 10,000 gallon vinyl pool. Our neighbor has a 20k+ gallon and this is his first year with a pool as we'll. We are learning together, good stuff. I was using test strips for a while with pool store chems and it is time for a real test kit and BBB method. Just got the Taylor K-2006 eith a speedstir and I'm ready to do it the right way.
Pool looks great, but all levels are low (and the wife says she is turning green ) I figure the first step is to get the Alkalinity and PH up then the Chlorine. Used the kit to determine my TA was 10ppm and the pool calculator for Baking Soda. I will test her again in the morning. Hopefully PH and Alkalinity are up and I can work on Chlorine. I have some liquid CYA on order so that will have to wait until it gets here for that.
Excited to become a part of this community. I'll get my signature set up soon along with some picts. There will be plenty of questions.
