    Just for fun...PS testing

    I had to buy a new handle for my vacuum head so for fun, I took a water sample to a national chain PS (hint...it is a unisex name).

    PS test results:

    FC 5
    PH 7.6
    CH 160
    TA 70
    CYA 100
    Salt 3000

    Taylor K2006C test results:

    FC 8.5
    CC 0
    PH 7.5
    CH 220
    TA 70
    CYA 80
    Salt 3400

    It wasn't as bad as I thought, but amazing the FC and CH difference. The employee amazingly enough didn't try to sell me anything and even asked if I had baking soda to raise my TA. I explained that I keep my TA at that level so my PH is stabilized and the employee ignored that and still wanted me to raise the level.

    Not too bad. The CYA could cause some problems if it were true.
