To start off I know nothing about pools other than what I have read here, so please bear with me. I have a friend that I work for on weekends. He has the pool listed in my signature. He also has no clue about pools and wanted some help. He is not an internet person so I decided that i would try to help him out. I found this forum and WOW what a wealth of info. So first off thanks for being here.
I just received a TF100 test kit but have not been to his house to test the water yet. I do know that the pool store sold him some of the trichlor tabs to put in his chlorine feeder and that the water is blue but somewhat cloudy. There is a brownish/tan stain all around the pool that is most likely due to some of the fill water containing iron.
My plan Saturday morning when I get there is to test the water and then go shopping for supplies to attempt to get the water balanced per instructions in pool school. However I have one problem. He does not have a computer or internet access.
Is there any way to do the calculations by hand instead of using the http://www.poolcalculator.com ?
Once again thanks in advance.
