Bought a house in March, in Pittsburgh, that came with an above ground pool. Took the cover off last night and did some testing with my TF 2006 test kit. The water was decent looking, could see to the bottom, but it was a bit hazy. Haven't started the pump yet...will work on that tonight...so my test sample wasn't from circulated water...but I wanted to get some practice and see how things looked. Doesn't look great...numbers-wise.
PH: <7.0 (was a yellow color, which went below the last color on the tube)
TA: 90 (at least one thing looks ok)
I'm assuming I need to drain about 45%? I knew the previous owners were dedicated to the pool store system...so I was afraid CYA would be insane. I guess it could be worse, though. Should I take another sample after I get things circulating?
