So my very first pool has just finished filling like 2 days ago, I have no experience what so ever and I am really worried about screwing up my beautiful new pool. I have been on the site constantly the past few months trying to learn all I can about how to care for my pool. I have been reading pool school (which I am really diggin' even tho my head feels a little overwhelmed) and I am trying to figure things out but I need some help.
I took a water sample to Leslie's today -I know, I know, I need to get my own kit :P but that is what the PB told me to do. These are the results:
I haven't added anything to my pool so my confusion is where the heck did all the CYA come from?
And from what I am reading that is way too high and the only way to bring it down is to add water, but that is the only thing I have added. I am super confused.
Also I am concerned because I ended up with the pool frog system and I am afraid it is going to cause me problems but I don't really know what to do about it. Can I just not use the system and monitor the chemicals myself or does it have to be disconnected?
I don't mean to sound stupid but this is all very new to me and I dont want to do anything that will cause serious damage. Plus I saw a link on here to a video about a pool popping out of the ground and I am now having nightmares about that
Thanks in advance
