Good evening all! I am so excited, I busted out my TF100 kit tonight and tested my pool for the first time! It was plastered on 9/24 and done filling on 9/25 and the builders pool person added chemicals on 9/25 then again yesterday. Yesterday she said she left some trichlor pucks in the skimmers (she threw in a bunch of shock too and some MA). Tonight I took it upon myself to test everything to see where I'm at. She is coming back Monday afternoon to give me "pool school", but I feel like after all the research I've done.. I could probably give her a little schooling The pool is crystal clear by the way and pretty much has been since day 1. I've brushed the darn thing 3 times a day for the first 7 days and now I'm just brushing it once a day... though that's probably overkill.
Everything seems a little low but I'm not really worried (except for the CYA... but I'm guessing that will go up gradually with the pucks in there)... Once she's done giving me "pool school" should I ditch the pucks and get all my levels up manually with the calculator? I have a liquidator, but I'm not going to start using it until I get used to doing everything manually. Should I bother testing all of those again tomorrow or just the daily tests? Opinions welcome! Thanks!
