    First season

    Hello all. I first want to say that this site is AWESOME!!! I have learned so much in the short time that I have been a member. I opened my pool last week. Water was a little cloudy. I ran the pump for a few days along with vacuuming it. Unfortunately, or should I say fortunately, I came across this site searching for the best test kit. So I seem to be doing things backwards. LOL. I don't have any readings for you but I did ordered the TF-100. I'm Supposed to receive it tomorrow. In the meantime I added about a half gallon of bleach per day just to make sure something was in there. My water is crystal clear just two days after opening which is the best case scenario. So my question is once I get my kit and do the testing as long as my levels are good and my cc is 0 I should not have to do anything but maintain. Correct? Again you guys rock...

    Re: First season

    You'd start by doing the overnight FC loss test. If you pass that, don't have CC, and your water looks good visually, then it's on to balancing your other levels using PoolMath. If it doesn't pass you might need a short SLAM to finish it out.
