Central Florida new pool owner

I recently moved to a house in Windermere with a pool. I’ve never had a pool before and would like to do my own maintenance. I’m hoping to learn what I need to do to ensure clear clean water year round. I’m taking my water to Pinch a Penny once a week for analysis and following their recommendations for chemicals.

Welcome, and congratulations on getting a house with a pool.

I suggest you read this

And you need to buy a real test kit. Pool store testing is notoriously inaccurate and will result in buying lots of stuff you dont need.

Best thing is to get one of these, and get the Speedstir as well make testing easier.
