    Could my FA reagents gone bad?

    My water looks great but my latest test was:

    PH 8.0
    TA 110
    FC 12??????
    CC 0
    CYA 80
    CH 350

    I let Leslie test it and they came back with

    PH 7.8
    TA 60?????
    FC 4.0
    CC 0
    CYA 70
    CH 210
    Salt 3700 (odd bc this is the highest reading I have ever had and I haven't added salt all summer and just added a little water)

    Could my FC reagents have gone bad?


    20' x 50' AG gunite pool (no idea on gallons) built a long time ago. DE Filter w/Hayward Pump. Well water.

    I doubt it. Leslie's testing is typically not very reliable. They do not use the good chlorine test.

    It was a week ago and it was 3.5. I have never been over 4. Could it be that high? Would I notice when I swam in it?

    How do you chlorinate? You cannot detect it when you swim.....there's no danger.
