I posted yesterday about adding bleach & CYA until I got my TF100 kit. It arrived so I tested it. Yesterday I added about 60 oz of 10 % bleach plus the amount of CYA pool math stated-don't remember how much but it was alot-close to 8 cups. The first sock dissolved well but the second didn't fit in the skimmer so I hung it by the jet. It still hasn't all the way dissolved. Anyway, here are my numbers:
FC, 0, yes, that's right, a big fat 0
TA, 240 I think, it turned pink at 24 & got slightly darker as I kept adding to 30 drops.
CH, 225, again that's when it turned but it's more purple than blue. I added a couple of more drops & it was just slightly darker.
CYA, i'm guessing 15 as I was still seeing the dot with the tube completely full. It was cloudy & starting to diminish so that's my best guess.
These numbers seem really strange to me but then again what do I know about this so far, LOL! i did not do the Chlorine Drop test since it registered 0 on the FC. The CYA sock is still hanging in there, but has dissolved enough I could probably put it in the skimmer, but I'm not sure what to do. I'm not real sure about using the pool math tool just yet also, so I would love it if someone can give me thoughts & then I can play around with it making sure I'm getting the right values. On a good note, the pool is clear, the slimy bottom was gone, & there was a bit of remaining green on the sides walls. I brushed that today & have had the pump going all day. Remember, the pool had about 14 " of rainwater in it plus it took me about 3 days to fill since I didn't go full bore with our well water not having the highest pressure-still needed some house water!! Thanks again everyone.
