    Hi Maddie, I think I have filled it out. We have a 17,000 gallon pool, with an earth filter. I think pretty standard set up....I have attached some pictures. I am going to ask the pool guy to drain, I would hope he follows all the necessary requirements.

Used a pool test strip (please see attached) and...
