    First test with a real test kit

    Here are my results for my first TFP test using K2006 kit

    FC. 1.8
    CC. 0.4
    CYA. 40
    PH. 7.6
    TA. 125 (changed halfway between drops)
    CH. 90 (vinyl pool so not really concerned)

    So it looks like all I need is a raise in FC and the rest is fine. Am I right?

    Thanks!! Feel like a real scientist now.

    Nick

    Kinda fun...isn't it? Get yourself a Taylor Speedstir and white lab coat to complete the feeling.

    Nice work, Nick.

    Your pool water is VERY clear, right?

    Yes. Crystal clear. I've been using your methods for two years now, but finally bought the test. The biggest difference is that I'm only adding small amounts of chlorine now instead of gallons and half gallons at a time. Also enjoy not trying to color match chlorine!

    Are you talking about the "magnetic stirrer" on Amazon for about $26?
