New to forum and pool ownership! It's not a big pool, 12ft x30 in round but does have a filtration system and I know needs to be treated so please help? I read the entire article about the TFPC method and am very interested. I went to pool calculator and it was too overwhelming for me.
To start, what first? It's approx 2500 gallons so how much 6% bleach do I put in to begin. Current chlorine reading is below 0.6 (not registering on test kit). PH is approx 7.7 ? (It's hard to tell the exact color match)
I did gave a 10 ft x 30 in for one week (long story why I switched) and I was using the 1 inch chlorine tabs and I just don't know if I like using such potent stuff AND the filter kept getting blocked up and water was really cloudy, boo.
So I'm asking a few questions:
(1) how much bleach to start
(2) do I need to start with clarifier/stabilizer/conditioner. And how much?
(3) what's the key, best thing that keeps the pool clear and NOT cloudy?
Thanks in advance!!
