Hello, just want to say I am so glad I foundthis site. I am hoping to have better luck this year. Last year I had algae andhad to empty the pool and start over. I purchased the TF 100 kitbecause I had so much trouble last year. I filled the pool with citywater at the end of last year and had it covered all winter. It has beenraining for so long, that it has only been in the last 2 weeks that I have beenable to try to get the pool ready. Today 6.13.16 I tested thepool water.
Here are my readings using the TF 100 kit
FC = 3.5
CC = 1.5
TC = 5.0 PPM
Calcium Hardiness test 175ppm
Total Alkalinity 250ppm
CYA test, the black dot never went away. I followed the instructions and Icould see the black dot when the container was filled to the top.
Thanks so much for your help,
