    Fill Water Testing from Hose or just filled Pool? Pebble Finish getting filled today

    My pool will be getting filled this afternoon after a StoneScapes pebble finish is acid washed this morning. I just bought my Taylor K2006 (after 2 decades of doing a poor job with basic kits... but not any more!).

    I will likely need assistance from TFP getting started, so my question is:

    Should I test my "fill water" from my yard hose? Or is the "fill water" scooped from the pool when its mostly filled so I'll have the numbers with the effects of the latent acid and whatever higher ph the pebble/plaster adds?

    Or both?

    Hey, the guys just arrived to acid wash it. Thanks all in advance,
    22,000 gal in-ground- StoneScapes Pebbble/Plaster Finish 50x17-ish 4.5ft deep max. Solar metal panels on roof keeps pool warm (Low Ph not good for it) Itelliflo 2speed + DE Filter - Taylor K2006 testing
    No Gas Heater...NO spa. Pool temp during Spring thru fall is usually very warm 85 to 90 degress because of Solar Metal Panels (for after sunset swims)

    wm,

    Test the water from your hose...

    I would not test the actual pool water until your pool builder turns the pool over to you.. Only because you can't do anything about the readings, and it will make you feel ill...

    Once yours, you will be able to whip it into shape pretty quickly.

    Thanks for posting,

    Jim R.
