I have had my above ground pool for 12 years. We just replaced the vinyl liner a few weeks ago and therefore have a freshly filled pool. However, every year I struggle with balance. I feel like I know nothing more than I did 12 years ago. That was until I visited your site. I plan to put into practice everything you have a taught me thus far. However, when I used the pool calculator, it prompted me to use only 0.2 ounces of bleach. Now I do not have accurate figures for all the levels because 1) I have been using only test strips and 2) test like CYA is not available, but I am pretty sure I am going to need more than 0.2 ounces of bleach to make any difference. I know I need a better testing method. So my question is do they have a kit which includes all of the necessary chemicals to be tested. Please advise me on your best recommendation for what I would need. Thank you and love your site!
