Very new to this site.
Just finished TFP's Pool School- not memorized yet but I have been through it.
I still have much reading to do elsewhere on this forum.
We are soon to open our pool.
1- I have chlorine pucks on hand from last season. Use them to start or not? Hate to waste money.
2- I have a test kit unlike the 3 recommended. Will get the TF 100 for sure, do I do that now or just get the refills of what I lack.
I have Leslie’s DPD Deluxe Test Kit, $29 online, is a smaller version of recommended Leslie’s, so I lack a few items
My kit has
1- Combined chlorine FAS-DPD titration test. I have 2 yellow bottles R-0001 & R-0003 that state DPD Reagent # 1 & #2. so same?
2- I need OTO Total Chlorine/Bromine for sure; it is not in my kit.
3- Total Alkalinity- I have one bottle with Green cap & green liquid that states R-0008 Total Alkalinity. Is this all I need. I also have 2 other clear liquid with green caps that state R-0007 Thiosulafate N/100 & the other states R-009 Sulfuric Acid .12N
4- I see nothing that mentions “Calcium Hardness” so I need that, right? Or are the 3 green cap bottles I mentioned above that?
5 Same question re Cyuranic Acid
6- I don’t need salt strips, right?
My guess is to just get the TF 100 kit & trash the old one but if that is silly then I won’t. If the answer is to just get the TF 100, do I need salt strips?
