Mods: Please move if wrong forum. Just getting excited about my new TF100 kit coming tomorrow or Tuesday so I’m starting my own thread!
Closed November with 8ppm FC (dipstick) and 20 or so oz of
Kem-Tek 311-6 Algaecide 60% Concentrate.
Opened 5/1/16, crystal clear!
Dipstick readings (as I await my kit)
Added about 12oz (don't ask why. I still don't know other than being nervous about algae).
Kem-Tek 311-6 Algaecide 60% Concentrate
Added 6” of water (30% of that was rain, the remainder was softened well water, 7.6 pH and TA of 160 with dipstick).
Pics from opening day...then readings and questions below.
Added 2# Bioguard smart shock (apparently has copper and di or trichlor so my CYA will go up)
Pump on 24/7
TC 2 (looked to be a color between 1.0 and 3.0, so that’s a 2.0 to me)
1) I know the dipstick isn’t worth much
2) I know the bioguard is expensive and can be a PITA with copper and CYA...but hey, it brought it up already where I want it!
1) Anything I need to do right now? Pump running on timer 0630-1030 and 2:00p-8:30p. Didn’t want to add anything with the test kit being here in a dayor two.
2) Any guesses at what I might find with the test kit?
