    Hello from Florida

    I'm excited to have the TFP community as a resource and avoid the trappings of the pool store. I've been lurking for awhile but this is my first post.

    Recently bought a new home and it has a somewhat neglected 18'x36' in-ground pool. Not looking as bad anymore. I've purchased my TF-100 but haven't really gone deeper than tesing PH and Basic Chlorine. It's our "winter" so maintenance has been relatively easy.

    18'x36', 24k gal IG; Pentair SuperFlo 1HP 2 speed pump; Pentair 200 Cartridge filter

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I suggest you take this time now to become comfortable with the full set of tests.

    Did you follow the ShockLevelAndMAINTAIN Process to get the pool cleaned up?
