Hi all Thanks in advance, I opened my pool this year with well water , I shocked the pool and the water turned like a brown / green , then I added metal out as per the required gallons of pool water , within 24 hrs. the water cleared up completely. Vacuming and flushing the de filter and reloading the water is still clear . While waiting for my TF-100 kit to arrive I took a sample to my local Leslies pool center and here are their results :
they had me add 2Gal of conditioner (Stabilizer) good for 20,000gal
My TF100 test kit arrived today and here are My results :
CL=3 to 4
Chlorine drop test =4
Water is sparkling clear.
What now ?
On the pool Math what is borates ?
How do you measure borates ?
How do they come into play with the other readings ?
Am I completely off base ?
any help is completely appreciated in breaking ties with the box stores ,
