    TF100 results, any help?

    Alright, I've got some results from my test with my TF100.

    FC 9.5
    CC 0.0
    PH 7.6 sweet! Been working on getting it to hold below 7.8
    TA 60, sweet!!! Was 110 a month ago, been working it
    CH 410
    CYA 50
    Borate 30

    Added 20 ppm of borax, cuz i like it, and some muriatic acid, ph ended at 7.4

    CYA was 70 a month ago. Kinda weird, it hasn't rained that much. We do swim every day, an hour plus per day during the week and who knows how many hours on the weekend. Lots! Maybe splash out and carry out. Added 15ppm cya in a sock and started squeezing!


    Brushed and swam all afternoon!

    One question? Is it ok if we swim at least 6 hours every day??? We have chilly beverages!

    I did not see a result for DHMO. I would DEFINITELY stay out of the water until you get that parameter under control.

    Bliz,
    LOL! Had to google that and go to LPS to buy a DHMO test strip. My DHMO is 320ppm, just about right!

    Woody,
    I tried to take a pic of the chilly beverage but I can't find it!

    Kids are whining about getting OUT of the pool! Sheesh! Kids these days, I tell ya!!

    I think I would concentrate on getting your DHMO down to 0ppm....If you want to keep from becoming a walker (walking dead person) lol
