    New test results and using CYA standard

    Instead of adding to my long-standing thread I thought I would start a new one. I recently received the CYA standard R 7065 and if that is a 50, my results have been off slightly in the past. I tested multiple times with the standard and can still see the dot, although barely and fuzzy. Must br
    my 20/15 vision in one eye LOL.

    Lots of rain this morning, probably should get some of it out of the pool, but my results are good right now.

    PH 7.0 as close as I can guess
    FC 5.0 which is great considering my new CYA appears to be 40
    CC nada
    CYA 40
    TA 90
    Might as well take the pool cleaner out since I have so much pollen floating on the top.
    Hopefully warm up in a few days, supposed to be getting great weather next week. Or I should say the week after.

    Will pollen affect my results?

    Hey, can you slip a skimmer sock, painters liner or hosiery sock into your skimmer to help collect all that pollen? It keeps it out of your filter that way. You just have to monitor in case it gets super loaded so you don't impede water to the filter. You might be grossed out by all it collects, but its so much better for your filter.

    Were you dropping your pH so as to drop your TA??

    I put in a hairnet. One of the ones somebody from here suggested. I was dropping my TA from 220 originally.

    Well then it worked wonders! Now you need to aerate to raise that pH again.

    Good move on the hairnet.
