First post, lurked a bit last summer... Trying to give a lot of context here so forgive the length and any extraneous info. Wondering what others would do to regulate this pool now and in the future. I know it is low on chlorine. Figure best to wait for input before correcting that.
- 2nd summer with this water, pool opened March 2014.
- dichlor shock this summer, probably 15 pounds total used since 3/14
- hyperchlorite shock last summer, probably 20 pounds total used since 3/14
- trichlor tablets both summers, probably 60 pounds total used since 3/14
Ordered and used the TF100 for these results below. Found it easy to use but I have trouble believing my calcium is QUITE that high. Should I be waiting for ANY color change to purple to end the test? Also, the black dot test for CYA felt like a dream sequence or something. Did I really see it?
