    Pool store

    Went to pool store today for case of MA so decided to take sample water with me to get a laugh. A month ago they said my CYA was 90. Today they say its 45. How can it go from 90 to 45 without partial drain and refill, haha
    They said my PH was 8.0. I checked before going to store and it was 7.5.
    Watching them do drop test is more like a squirt
    This is why you should only trust your test and not pool store with good test kit like TF100

    My numbers:
    FC 4.5
    CC 0.5
    PH 7.5
    TA 90
    CH 275
    CYA 40
    BORATE 40
    water temp 90 degrees
    water crystal clear

    They would probably tell you it's because you have Borates in your water and you should NEVER use household bleach with borates in your pool. But, we have just what you need to correct that
