    I've got absolutely no clue where to start!

    I can't offer much help, but I have enjoyed reading your thread, and can't wait to see when you post a picture of your crystal clear water.

    Lets talk about copper.

    Ok guys I need help, and need to know what I should do next. I have been testing my fill water with my TF-100 kit and wanted to get my fill water tested for metals. I don't know why I had that bright idea, but if some could slap me it would be great lol. Anyways I went to Leslie's pools and had...

    Pump Output vs. Total Resistance to Flow

    I have a question about my setup, and I'm hoping someone can give me some advice. I might even be looking too far into this lol. I have a 28ft above ground pool with two skimmers, with a Hayward super II, 1.5HP two speed pump. ( SP3010X152AZ ) (...

    First AGP

    If you have a in the wall skimmer, then 1/2 up is what most people call full. If you have a sand filter, most have a "Waste" position that will remove water from the pool.

    New pool next week, whats next?

    It will need water in it. they are going to put it 2' in the ground and back fill it. I tried to get the guy out before the pool was in, but he needs to bound the pool as well so it has to wait till everything is done.

    Dirk, you are 100% right on that, just doing the 4 or 5 tests have helped me so much its unreal. When the kit first showed up I was over overwhelmed with all the little bottles lol, now its only taking me 3-5mins to do it. We did not get started on the pool today, but we are trying for tomorrow...

    Dirk, I 100% agree with you, and would follow the forum advice before a pool store or a manufacturer. When I was pool shopping, I was told so many different things that I knew I had to find a forum or something to cut out all the junk. You guys have been so awesome its unreal. It's one of the...

    New pool next week, whats next?

    Thanks guys for all the responses. 1- I have been unable to find anyone willing to truck in water, most of the places I called work for the oil field, and don't deal with water for swimming/drinking, might be a Oklahoma thing lol. 2- I have been able to get the copper down to 2. I have been...

    Dirk, Yes same water source, and from my searching it looks like you can't remove cooper, without a drain but that would be pointless since this would be my fill water lol. So I don't know what to do. This is what I'm doing. On step 3 when I add R-0870 nothing happens, water stays clear...

    New pool next week, whats next?

    As always thanks for the help guys. We do have a Leslie's pool store about 15mins away, and today we got it tested. I did run my tests again, and I will run them again tomorrow to see if my numbers change a lot. Dirk you are 100% correct with "test is time sensitive". When I added the r-0870...

    New pool next week, whats next?

    You guys I'm so lost on this testing stuff, its not even funny anymore lol. It looks like I did one test wrong which is the FC test, I did a total chlorine test (TC), I thought that was a FC test. I guess with the TF-100 test kit, you have two ways to find TC, one is just one test with the...

    New pool next week, whats next?

    Ok first time testing any water, but I think I did it correctly. Only thing i'm not 100% sure about the FC test. Is the FC test the same as the Total chlorine test with the Taylor k-1000? because that is the test that I did with reagents R-0600. TC -.5-1 TA - 50 PH - 7.2 (Maybe lower but not...

    New pool next week, whats next?

    Thanks for the responses everyone. Our pool is getting pushed off till Thursday, installer broke his bobcat. On a good note I did get my tf-100 kit today, so I am able to test my fill water now. Since this is 100% new to me, what test do I need to run on my fill water?
