    Use New Chemicals!!

    Hi everybody. I won't go into detail here for fear of embarassing myself but I have learned the hard way not to use 4+ year old chemicals when testing the pool. I got Dave's TF test kit yesterday and most areas were either higher or lower than I had been accustomed to seeing after testing with Cro-Magnon test kits. Proves the old saying once again... a man is no better than the tools he uses.

    14 X 28 vinyl lined IG pool with Hayward pump/filter, an Aqua Genie skimmer and a TF test kit.

    For the first five years I thought pool maintenance was a snap. Little did I know what my future held using stabilized chlorine. BBB from now on....... you live and learn.
    P.S. Understand that when you ask questions the answer may not be one you like.
