I was hoping to get chemicals tonight but I had a drip I needed to get great white sealant for and finish topping my Intex 16x48 off! Finally got it topped off and 1st test results in! Just regular Intex 635T pump with hayward skimmer added.
Figured I'd come to the masters for my 1st round to get it balanced. I know we have a calculator but id like to get the basic pro advice and I'll be at work tomorrow and hoping to get chemicals on way home and be swimming on the 4th of July. I know I can add bleach and shock or acid....learning the ropes so bare with me. Do tablets in floater work best once levels are reached?
Figured I'd post my results, water from hose only and no chems-
FC -2 (4 drops)
Total Chlorine- 2.5
CH- It turned blue right after adding the R-0010 (maybe due to water softener?)
TA- 90 (9 drops it took)
CYA- 0 (filled the whole tube and can still see the black dot, no chem in pool!)
I was cautious with my first test but wasnt too bad, when I opened the kit I was like o **** what did i get myself into lol!
