My pool is in its first year and getting a workout in this heat wave!
I have been wary of the pool store tests, but have only had a very basic kit (pH, chlorine, TA).
I'd like to be able to do all of the necessary testing myself. What do people recommend?
Chlorine is remaining within limits and pH is good. TA always seems to be low (80-100, and should be higher for my fibreglass pool).
I keep referring back to this site and reading posts, lots of my issues have been solved that way. Finally getting my head around pool chemistry.
Also....can any Aussie members help me out with where they buy chemicals and tests online with reliable service? My first attempt was a fail, the chlorine test tablets I needed took weeks to arrive (no store in my town unfortunately). Postage should have been overnight.
Feeling like I have only skimmed the surface of what I should be doing.
Cheers from Aus!
