Put the pool in last year and let the PS close it and open it the other day. Before I could get a sample of the water the pool dude put some powder in the pool and a bottle of something to break down scaling he said. They said let the pool run for 48 hours and then go to regular schedule. I did that and tested the water yesterday at lunch:
The water was clear and perfect after they removed the solid cover as they said it would be but I really was not wanting them to put anything in my pool without me ok-ing it. I do not like the way the PS makes everything look like a secret and won't tell you anything. They told me to bring a sample in and let them test it in a few days, (like that is gonna happen). All they will do is try and sell me some expensive chemical that I prolly don't need.
One concern I had was the CH as it is suppose to have a yellow tint to it but this test was basically red. That is why I listed it as >5. Is it because of the high FC level that this test went as it did.
Any other recommendations of anything I need to do would be appreciated.
