    First testing of water question...

    I bought the T100 test kit for my pool and it is just now in the process of being filled. Which test do u recommend me doing first? The basic K-100? If so, any others? Thanks for the advice.

    On a fresh fill you want to check PH, TA, and CH. CYA will always be zero to start and any chlorine will be burned off by the sun very quickly. CH is rarely important for an above ground pool, but you want to double check that it isn't too high.
