I took a sample to my pool store today and got the following results:
Total Chl 3.6
Tot Alk 98
When I tested with the K-2006 I got:
CYA (dot never disappeared, test water was clear)
Tot Chl: 5
Tot Alk 130
There is a large discrepancy in the TA. I have tested both the pH and TA 3 times since opening the pool 1 week ago and always get these same results.
What do you recommend for the large difference in FC and TC? The pool store said to remove the sanitizer tablet. They also recommended adding 2 lbs of stabilizer to raise the CYA.
I appreciate any recommendations you can give. I am hoping to maintain our pool this summer and avoid the $500 plus I spent in chemicals last year.
Thanks so much!
