So, we are somewhat moved in and adjusting to life with a new-to-us pool
I ordered the wrong test kit on accident, wanted the TF-100 but ended up with the Taylor k-2006. Seems decent enough so far, but will grab the tf-100 next year probably.
A few questions from someone who doesn't know what they are doing lol...
Initial CYA test.. I could see the dot even after filling the whole tube... Does that mean my cya is super high or super low? Guessing super low, and probably need to add stabilizer.
My ph and ta are high... I keep getting it to touch down in the normal range, but it quickly bounces back to being high again. I initially added a whole gallon of muriatic acid a few days ago (added in quarter gallon increments until it came down to normal) but it crept back up, then added a half gallon, noticed today it's back up high again.
If my CYA is out of whack, could that be causing the high ph?
My swg generator is running at about 40% and that seems to be keeping the chlorine in the right range. When we moved in, the previous homeowner had it set as high as it will go... I suppose it's fine to leave it at 40% as long as it's maintaining good chlorine levels?
Also, my swg seems to need the pump running at about 3,000 rpm to keep the swg flow light green. Is that excessive?
I am going to do another round of tests today and punch everything into the pool math form and see what the magic calculator tells me to do . Just wanted to get some idea in whether some of this stuff is normal . Thanks so much!!!!
