I just received my Taylor 2006 from tfteskits.net
I have an intex 18x9x52 ultra pool with 4500/gallons
I have the intex salt water generator (CG-28669) and the Intex sand filter.
I bought the kit because I felt that the store that tested my water for free was trying to push chemicals for me to buy. Maybe I am paranoid, but they don't seem trustworthy. I remember when I told the guy that I had a salt water generator how he dismissed it as being useless. After that time I just don't trust them.
I would rather not add CYA if I don't have too. I don't care if the SWG works a couple of more hours a day. I would like to use as little chemicals as possible. Can I avoid using CYA. If I have too I will as I have the CYA is pellet form and as a liquid stabilized, I just rather not. Another thing, when they tested my water they informed me that I had 0 CYA, now that is not possible as I put a 1 lb of the pellets in the water. I read that CYA never goes away and they only way to dilute is to remove water. That is another reason why I don't have too much faith in the store's testing results.
What tests do I need to perform, at what frequency and what are the acceptable ranges for each test?
I saw a video on-line on how to perform the chlorine test using the taylor 2006, however, it does not state the acceptable range. Same for PH.
Thanks for your help
