I just started using my TF-100 kit and got accurate CH readings for the first time. I came up with 600! Is this normal for a new pool which was just plastered this spring? Is there a problem with a reading this high? Also, our pool builder provided us with several bags of 3" chlorine tabs and a floater basket for dissolving them. I have been putting them in but wondered if this was needed if I have a chlorine generator. I decided to take out the basket and see what would happen. The chlorine plummeted to about 1 from a previous reading of 4.5. The chlorine generator was at 30% and is now at 60%. I'm going to recheck the chemistry after the filter runs this afternoon. Any thoughts?
Thanks for the wisdom.
