It's been awhile since I checked in 8 years lol! Been trouble free . I am having a problem passing oclt test. Let me start at the beginning. Last week I noticed I was having a hard time maintains my cl levels. My swg was running at 100% for 10 hours and I had never had to do this before. So I broke down the aquapure and got the minuscule amount of scale off of it ( no error codes). Cleaned the filters (that were not that dirty). Checked my cya and saw that it was at 90, a bit high. Checked my salt and saw it was at 3200.
So This Monday came around and I decided it was time to slam the pool for the first time e v e r because obviously something was trying to take hold in the pool and this must be the reason the swg couldn't keep up. Picked up 12 128oz bottles of bleach. The girl at the check out was like whoa! I told her i had to get rid of the blood stains Bwhahahhhahhaaaaa and then she was really freaked out lol. I dumped a bit of my water to get the cya down to 70 and put in 6 bottles but that was too many because I had the wrong size pool in the calculator. Whoops.
I had been getting by with the oto test kit for the past 7 years. And my pool has been perfect. You could see a pin at the bottom of it...and here is the part that kills me....STILL can. But I knew to do the test right I had to get the tf100. Ordered it, and it will be here today. In the mean time I am borrowing a friends who I turned on to tfp when he moved and got a pool. He is a tfp believer .

I noticed last night that my cya dropped 20 since starting the slam process? I found that strange. I am also frustrated as I pride myself on my ability to keep my pool looking flawless. I mean I am always checking levels, brushing, cleaning filters, etc... So this is getting more than a little bit old to say the least especially since my pool looks great and always has.
