I would like to switch to BBB method. from what I understand the firstthing I need is a test kit. Which one do I buy. Currently pool was uncovered most of winter is dark green has frogs and piles of leaves at bottom. I have well water so cant just vac to waste and refill as that would deplete my well. tons of problems that I need to break down to baby steps. For now what test kit do I need to open pool and then what is first step.

Read the Pool School for more info. For the test kit, get either the Taylor K-2006 or the TFTestkits TF-100 with the latter kit having more volume of reagents you use the most.
