As the title summarizes, I just closed on my house and became a pool owner for the 1st time. I have read through pool school and even purchased the testing kit (TF-100)and even the glycerin pressure gauge prior to closing. ( Just a note to others, don't change the gauge to the pool while the filter is running; that is not a fun experience)
So, the pool is I inherited was well take care of. It appears crystal clear when closing. The only thing is when I went swimming in it for the first time, it appeared that the steps into the pool were slippery. I assumed it was because this was a vinyl pool, however just searching on the net and even this website makes me think, do I have an algae issue?
I ran the water test yesterday and here are my results: This is my test run so hopefully I did everything correct.
FC = 11
Calcium = 96
CYA = 90
TA = 130
I understand these #'s are concerning, however I am just lost as to what to do at this point. Like I said the pool still appears crystal clear
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
