As the title suggests, I just cancelled my pool service, after doing much of the work myself all summer. I had purchased a brush, a net, a hose and vacuum head, and have kept the pool reasonably clean on my own. I finally purchased a TF-100 test kit last month, and after practicing a bit, call the pool service and said, Adios.
So here is where I am at. I ran my numbers, and want to run them by the experts before I add or do anything.
FC - 19
CC - 2
TC - 21
pH - 7.2
TA - 70
CH - 500
CYA - 75
My pool uses a Trichlor auto chlorinator. It is currently set at 4. I have read the pros and cons, and am strongly considering turning it off and adding chlorine myself.
So, what do y'all think? I guess it goes without saying that my numbers may be off as I am new to testing. All advice appreciated.
