So very thankful to have found this site...after a 4 day SLAM, I was able to counteract a zero FC scenario and now I read and reread the TFPC for beginners sticky (great thread btw)...so now what?
Any useful tips or tricks for a newbie TFPC'er? Since the tests to be performed daily include PH and FC...I assume I use the fancy Taylor kit that came with my tftkit? When do you need to use the FASDPD kit again?
How frequently do you guys test for the full set of numbers after your initial?
Is there anything that is a common problem for TFPC beginners that you can point out so I avoid making the same mistake (besides the obvious of ignoring the pool)?
My daily routine since the SLAM has been to test FC and PH, clear the skimmer basket and add chlorine as needed. Weekly I vacuum and/or brush, clear the skimmer and pump baskets, and test for TA (doing that today for the first time since initial #s).
Am I missing anything or is it really that simple?
