    New pool fill

    My TF100 will be here Monday, time to do some studying. I saw a thread on using the kit so I'll start there 😁. Thanks Oly I hope I can keep the temp down in the low 80s, these 95 days are rough and i get 7-8 hours of sun on my pool a day🌞🌡☀️

    New pool fill

    OK got my levels in decent shape, added cya in a sock suspended as recommended. Now hopefully learn what my chlorine loss will be. I should do that in a couple days so as to.let the cya dissolve and do its thing? Thanks everyone for the help😁👍😁

    New pool fill

    I ordered the TF100 yesterday. The 5 way kit I have is a vial kit but the chlorine didn't even register. Got my pump and filter up and running now so if any of its lingering around it'll get distributed today. Hopefully the TF100 will ship quick. My temp in the pool from well water is 70 degree...

    New pool fill

    OK cool deal, I am at about 30 inches of water, I put 4 gallons of 6% bleach in before I left for work. I'll do a test on the water this evening to see how it's looking. Im sure 4 gallons is only a drop in the bucket for first fill but thank you for the reply!
