Just joined the forum and figured I would say Hi. I have been reading up on Pool School and really ready to give these methods a shot. I was not happy with the way the season ended last year, I started having algae issues (just a very little bit, but them I am anal). Kept getting stuff from my pool store but really didn't seem to fix the problem, just made my chemistry all out of whack.
I will say that I was definitely doing it wrong. I was using test strips and just blindly following the pool store's advice. Now, this year, I will Take Charge!
I am ordering the TF-100 right now. So, I do have a few questions as well....
1) Please look at my signature, and let me know if there is anything missing or if the equipment is "good" or "bad"... Trust me, no feelings will be hurt, I bought all this as a package.
2) I am thinking about opening the pool up next weekend. Based on my size what would be "a good idea" to have on hand, chemical wise, and more importantly, how much... Last thing I want to do is buy a ton of Muriatic Acid, Bleach, and Borax only to have it sit around...
I know... without test results and even knowing what the water looks like no-one can tell what I will need to add.. I just want an idea of the typical..
Look forward to having a fun learning adventure with this.
