I always take my water to the pool guys and have them test it, and then spend a fortune for chemicals. A friend told me about TFP so here I am. We live in Western Kentucky and have a 24 X 4ft round above ground pool. I have filled it out of our well. As of right now, I do not have nice test kit. All I have at this moment is the chlorine/ph kit.
My chlorine of course was zero and I poured in what the pool math suggested, which was basically one jug of liquid bleach.
My pH is 6.8
That is where I am confused. Do I add baking soda or the borax? and how long do I wait to add it after the chlorine?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am new to figuring this out on my own. I usually just trust the pool guys to tell me what and when to put in and then spend a fortune.
