    Testing pH and TC After Rain

    Hi All!

    New to TFPC, great source of info and thank you so much.

    It's rained the last two evenings here and I was wondering how long I should wait to test my pH and TC after rain. Seems to me that all the rain water is close to the surface soon after a rain. I test in the early evenings which can be a problem with afternoon rain we get here in Florida.

    Thanks!

    Let it mix with the pump going for half an hour and it should be fine. You can also speed it up by brushing.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Always make sure to take the sample from at least 12 inches down as well.
    Best of luck
