I am a week in with my new pool. I have been reading the forum almost daily trying to educate myself on all the chemistry and TFP method. I did my first TF100 test this morning after it arrived last night.
Ph: 8.0 (added 2 cups of Muriatic)
TA: 120 (hoping the reduced Ph will lower slightly)
The temps have been between 90-103 and we have been in it almost everyday with a couple larger groups over the weekend. After the first day I took out the TriChlor floater and have been using 8.25% bleach from Home Depot and Wal-Mart. It has been clear and have had no signs of algae or murky water. I want to thank everyone for posting your advice and look forward to getting better at this. I am still amazed that the pool stores tell you completely different stuff. If I had followed their advice last week, I would have off the chart chlorine, a rising CYA and who knows what else.
