We had a 24x54 round AG pool installed. I have been pouring over the forum, gathering knowledge. I have been reading pool school, and trying to get handy with the calculator. I am waiting for my tf100 test kit to come in. I have ben watching videos, and it seems hard to use? Is it easy to get the hang of? I bought that one because it is so heavily recommended on this site. While waiting for my test kit to come in, I had my water tested at the store. My chlorine came back crazy high Total Chlorine was 9.0, free chlorine is at 4.8. My ph came back at 7.4, Alkalinity at 160, calcium hardness at 150. I removed the cover from the pool to burn off some chlorine, but I am leary to make any adjustments until I get (and learn how to use) my new test kit.My goal is to be BBB, but that also seems overwhelming to me.
Words of encouragement and advice?
