I finished setting up the pool yesterday and added half a bag of Leslie’s Chlor Brite Granular Chlorine. Also added 2 bags of pool salt (40lbs each) and 1/3 of a gallon jug conditioner. I want to know my salt and the stabilizer level but I haven't order the recommended test kit (TF-100) yet. Should I bring the water to Leslie and have them test it out? or should I just wait till I have the test kit and do it myself?
Also any recommend on where to buy the TF-100 test kit? I can't find it on amazon or ebay (2 sites I usually go for my online shopping lol). As for pool cleaning kit...do I just need a net, brush, and vacuum? My pool is no where near a tree so I don't think will be any leaf or debris falling into the pool so should I just get a brush and vacuum instead? Should I cover my pool all the time except for when using it? or should I leave the cover off and let the sun shine into the pool?
Sorry for all the questions...I am very new at this.
