    New Liner, New Water, how to get Levels where needed

    We plan to just close the pool. If that’s the case should I not even bother retesting and just put chlorine in? Should I still lower the PH even if just closing?

    New Liner, New Water, how to get Levels where needed

    Hey Everyone! We had our pool liner replaced since when we bought the house the liner was ready to go. We refilled the pool and I tested the new water with the TF100 kit. Below are my results. What is the correct step for which levels to target correcting first before trying to get the...

    It does seem to go "poof" as you state when I brush it so maybe it is algea. Didn't think it could grow that fast in an 8 hour span. The SLAM continues then.

    Thanks Kim. Added and looking good. So the water is looking pretty clear. I tried the overnight FC loss since it was clear and CC was 0.5 but lost more than 1. I might try again tonight. However, I think sand is coming into the pool. I vaccum this stuff everyday and it comes back in this same...

    So pool math says I need 8 lbs of stabilizer. Will need a couple socks to achieve that. Do I put all 8 lbs in socks at once or just fill one sock with as much as possible and once it dissolves add more?

    New Pool Owner, Need Help in sequence for correcting Levels

    Hello Everyone. We bought a new house this year and it came with a pool. Due to other house items that came first we opened the pool very late and in turn it has been rough. Before I found this site I was working with a local pool company to help get it clear, which it is still not. It is...
