Hello, I'm new to TFP and I'd just like to add my thanks to you all for a great and much needed website. I bought my first home 10 years ago and yes, it came with a pool. I can only say that I wish I had come across this website 10 years ago. Anyways, on to the fun!
Today I tried the TF-100 test kit for the first time ever after uncovering the pool.
CYA 20-30 (pool store said 35)
CH 400-450 (pool store said 390)
I suspect I may have to add a bit of conditioner and address the calcium issue. I did notice parts of the waterline tiles were broken and laying at the pool bottom. The water is very clear, no weird odor and a slight yellowing on the bottom deep end. Thanks again...
