Your location states Texas - it would be good to know which city you are closest to.I am going to start doing my own pool chemicals. I have a salt water pool that is plaster what do you recommend and where to buy them
I have a test kit will be here tomorrow and have salt test kit. Once I get I will post.Welcome to the forum!
First thing you need is a proper test kit and salt test kit. Do you have those?
You should have no hand muriatic acid and possibly a gallon or two of liquid chlorine. Depending on test results, you might need stabilizer (CYA).
Once you test your pool water with a proper test kit, post up your data and we can provide you some guidance.
I suggest you read ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry.
I have a Lamotte ColorQ 2x Pro 7 Test and salt test strips. Some colors are hard for me to tell that is why I chose the digital to help.Hi Monkey Girl, welcome. What test kit did you get?
Luckily for us, there are a ton of places to get the needed pool supplies. I usually get most of my stuff from Walmart, which is really only Liquid Chlorine and salt after the initial addition of CYA and Calcium.
Then I got to Lowes/Home Depot for Muratic Acid.
I still have never stepped foot in Leslies, and even Kroger has a small pool section with liquid Chlorine and other chemicals.
I can tell red to clear not different color red or green and blue. I had the Taylor 2005C I will need to get the one you suggested.
Thanks I will get the Fas-DPD kit I should use the recommended numbers from this site vs the user manuals for ranges on chemicals?OK -- the FAS-DPD is the one for FC / CC testing.
The CYA test is a non color test. I suggest you use the drop test for it. The TA should be OK on ColorQ. The CH will not be correct with ColorQ but I assume you do not have a high CH issue.
