New here and have really learned a lot but I am still a little confused.
I recently just put up intex 15x36 AG pool and had no clue how to take care of it until I found this website! I have been reading pool school over and over and the sticky about the care of intex pools. I have a couple of questions that I am still a
little confused about.
1. I read about the pool brand dichlor tablets from Sams Club and I also read about CYA....my question is do I need both or can I just do The CYA?
2. Right now I only have the OTO/red phenol HTH test kit from wal mart but I am planning to buy a better kit today....i do have a Leslies pool by me and heard that there kit is pretty much identical to the k2006 test kit, So do I buy that one or do I order the TF100 kit online and wait for it to come. I have only been adding bleach to the pool and have been ok but only because we have had crappy weather...now that its been sunny and nice I am blowing through chlorine like its going out of style. I want to do everything the right way but scared if I dont have that good test kit right away that I am gonna screw something up.
my OTO/phenol test was FC was about 5PPM before sun really hit it...1 hour later no FC 0 and PH is 7.5
My water has always been clear but I am scared my lucks gonna run out FAST! I need to get CYA in there ASAP
Sorry so many questions but I have never had a pool and Chemistry was never a great subject of mine
Thanks so much!
