new pool owner this year , must say this forum is great !! decided to try a Coleman pool for this year and upgrade next year if my family really enjoyed having a pool....installed the pool and had it filled on memorial day weekend. Upgraded the filter system 1 week after having the pool up and running , stock filter system is a joke....I run better filters in my aquarium's. Had a rough start when the pool was filled from the fire dept. 1st load of water was good......2nd truck was not so clean.....tanker must've been sitting for a while.. water was green when the fire dept. left .. could still see the bottom of the pool but water had a green tint , was not a happy camper !!!! but thanks to all the great advice I got on here I got things under control and everything seems to be in good shape. The BBB method works very well. Now if we could just get a few days without rain !!!
Here are the last test results from k-2006:
FC = 4
PH = 7.8
ALK = 110
CH = 70
CYA = 30
been able to keep the #'s steady except the ph....have to readjust after every rain storm ! got so much rain last week I had to drain some water out of the pool...was over flowing !
