Been doing lots of reading. Decided to jump on here for some real help. I purchased the Taylor K-2006 test kit. Pool store said I need to drain the pool mainly related to TDS = 3200 and nitrates at 40. Just trying to figure out if that is really necessary.

Start a thread in the Just Getting Started sub-forum. Post up your own test results from the K2006 kit in your new thread.

TDS is a meaning less value and nitrates do not matter to pool water chemistry.

I don’t know enough to say it is or isn’t algea but someone in FL just posted yesterday that they had been brushing a lot of pollen so I wanted to throw that possibility out there. Good luck. The experts will help clear you out if you need them.
