As the subject in the next days I've to start up this kind of pool.
I'm more less complete neewbe, just on small round pool, but with poor result.
Please help me to choice the right equipment to test the water and the right product to correct it.
I'm from Italy, I can buy the product in europe.

Thank you

Marco, it will be tough to take care of your pool with test strips. They are not accurate at all. But cloudy water could mean there is not a proper balance of stabilizer and chlorine. Please see our FC/CYA Chart to properly balance the CYA (stabilizer) and FC (Free Chlorine) together. Next time if you need to increase the pH, just create some aeration in the water. The bubbles and movement naturally increases the pH.

Ok thank you.
I'm waiting for a decent test, for PH FC and CYA, is not disposal anywhere, and also the corona situation slow down all the shipments.
In the meantime is correct to keep the poll closed and run h24 the pump with the SWG?

Thank you.
