Hey everyone. Introduced myself in the new guy room the other day and finally got my test kit in today. I am sure needing some help on what to do. Like the title says, this is my first pool so I am trying to get through the learning curve.
My pool is an above ground, 15ft round that holds aprrox. 4600gal. The test kit that I am using is the Taylor 2006
Here is what results I came up with.
7.0 ph units I tried to get it to be the right color, but it didn't seem to matter how much of the R-0005 I added. It just stayed yellow. In fact, it seemed to get even more so instead of turning pink. Am I doing something wrong?
The CYA test did not get cloudy at all. Saw the black dot all the way to the top.
Approx water temp is 58deg.
I would prefer to use the BBB method. But whatever it takes.
Id appreciate any advice. The water looks great right now, of course I just filled it at the first of the week, so I am sure it will go down hill if I don't get it right now.
