Got first pool for our child. 10x30 easy set pool and a hth 6 way test kit (will splurge on the "good" kit in a few weeks)
first test after a few hours of kid swim in with a cup of, no name brand, no % info bleach....put in twice a day. Water is CLEAR and we're on day 2 of just bleach and running pump all day.
Total Alkalinity: 170-200 ppm (I did this test twice I feel first time I rushed the drops so did it again and got a lower reading)
Hardness: 250 ppm
Since I've only added bleach I didn't do the CYA test since it only brings two.
We just ordered a 1000gph pump from amazon and looking for some dichlor shock to start from what I've read this is what I need.
The alkalinity is the only one that seems out of whack. What can I do to fix it, if it needs fixing or should I just wait until I get the chemicals before I worry about this?!
