    Can you please also update your location to include a state or country. There are at least 5 "Scio" in the US and a few overseas. Many times advice is based on the climate of the pool and the more information you can provide the better the help we can give.

    Re: Floc my pool and nothing help

    The basis of our method of pool care is accurate testing and only adding products to the pool that it needs and that we know work.

    So, to follow TFP guidance you need your own accurate drop based test kit which contains Taylor reagents. I recommend the following kit - TF-100 Test Kit As I suspect you will need to SLAM your pool, the XL option will provide the additional reagents you will need during this process. Also good to have are the SpeedStir and Sample sizer, but they are helpful items and not required for testing.
