Just received my TF-100 and excited to get started.
Prior to getting my kit, in the past two weeks or so, from reading on this site and using a basic test kit, I concluded that my CYA was low to non-existent (my chlorine was disappearing fast), and my PH was high. I added Muriatic Acid which brought the PH down to a normal range on the basic kit. I added liquid conditioner (only one gallon to get it going the right direction), which helped the chlorine last a little better. Today, the basic kit shows chlorine low and PH back up. I am not adding anything until I get feedback on the TF-100 results from you all.
TF-100 Test Results Today:
TA 300 (it barely turned a faded pink after 30 drops);
CYA very low to none I could still barely make out the black dot with the cylinder full to the top;
FC .5 ppm (1 drop required to clear);
CC .5 ppm (1 drop required to clear);
CH 125ppm (5 drops to blue).
Does it matter what I do first? Please give me advise. Step by step advise a child could follow would not be insulting my intelligence. Thanks in advance for your help!!!
