    TF-100 first test!

    Well the numbers are in..... I know I know "Go to pool school and use the pool calculator" Well I did and I just dont know if I tackle all problems at the same time or 1 at a time? Any advice would be great! BTW this is a brand new AGP that I put all of the starter conditioner I had in it 2 nights ago. Anyways, here are the results...
    FC 0
    TC 0
    CC 0 ( I know, obviously right?)

    How much starter conditioner did you add? First, you should add chlorine in there to the recommended level based on how much CYA you added. Then I would lower the pH to around 7.2.

    Welcome to the forum.

    What does your water look like?

    well water looks great.... maybe a green tint to it? IDK hard to tell with the green/blue liner. And for the chlorine, I am not going with my chlorine cartridges, instead I want to follow the BBB method. In that case "chlorine" is really "bleach" right?

    Maybe a green tint ? With no chlorine you need to SLAM. Read the process in pool school and follow to a T. If you do the OCLT pool-school/overnight_fc_test that will tell if something is consuming your chlorine. Yes bleach is chlorine. That's what you'll slam with.

    jfoeller,

    Let's go a little slower here. A new fill often does not require slamming, but we need some more info.

    I don't know what "starter conditioner" is so tell us what and how much you have put in your pool so far. Have you added any chlorine yet? Is the fill water from a well?

    Let's go back to this question as well. Is the green tint you're talking about looking like someone put a little green food coloring in and it's otherwise crystal clear? Or is it a green tint with a little haze to it, like it wants to turn a little milky and cloudy?
