I just got my Taylor 2006 kit and recorded the following numbers
FC 2.0/CC 0.2 = TC 2.2
This is the first time I have personally tested our pool in years.
Our pool was filled in 2010 and is covered with a vinyl pool cover >95% of the time.
The pool guy has been doing the chemistry and most of the chlorine added is
via a Pentair Rainbow 300 offline drip feeder. Supplemented with liquid chlorine and
acid as needed.
What confuses me is the 0 value for CYA. From reading the forum shouldn't the use
of tricolor in a feeder cause the CYA to continuously increase due to stabilizer in the tablets
until you have to drain water to get it back in range? I am having the opposite problem, and
have 0 CYA using tricolor tablets.
All this is in preparation for adding a liquid chlorine feeder, probably the Stenner pump approach,
which seems the most bullet proof. Can't use SWG, though I would love to, because we have a
cover with metal rails installed below the coping, and also travertine natural stone for coping and deck.
Evidently the heightened salt content would not be nice to these items.
The automatic chlorinators, such as Intellichem, don't get good grades for reliability, and the
ozone/uv systems like Solar Eclipse don't seem to work at all in outdoor, low usage pools.
Hope I am making sense.
Thanks for any inputs
