I just bought and filled a viynl pool with 660 gallons of water. I put essentially four onces of something that is supposed to kill germs and algae. I got a test kit that is supposed to tell you how much clorine bromide and ph there is in the water. My readings show there is too much of everything in it. I have a pump for the pool but I do not know how often to run it. This is my first pool and this thing seems to complicated for me. The water test kit shows colors and I cannot tell which colors are bad cause they all look the same to me. Help!


Go ahead and run the filter and keep it going until the water is closer to the ok levels. After that you probably only need to run the filter long enough to get all the water in the pool through the filter one time. That depends on the speed/power of your pump.
