I'm a newbie to all this, so appreciate your patience. On the advice of a few people on this forum, I've just had my Taylor K-2006c and K-1766 test kits delivered to Australia. Besides the cost of shipment, it was very smooth. Thanks to all who suggest what additional reagents etc. to get and for the $20 discount code for December.
So now that I can (hopefully) get some accurate results, I just had a couple of questions. Results first...
Salt 7800 (Watermaid salt cell with target of 6000 - I think this is slightly higher than the US cells)
FC 3.4 ppm
So - my summary....
Salt a bit high, but with the rain drenching we're getting in Sydney at the moment, that will come down through dilution, so I'm not that bothered.
CC - I thought I did something wrong with the test to get this, but from reading on this forum this seems OK??
pH - too high, I added about 1.5l of Acid. pH seems to be always on the high side and I'm always adding acid. Is this normal?
CH - a bit too low??
TA - OK
I'd love some comments - thanks in advance!
