First of all, I have a salt water pool at home (my second year with it) and have 0 problems balancing it. I am a Realtor and I represent a development and it has an indoor pool and an outdoor pool and I have been balancing those as well. I haven't had any problems balancing the outdoor pool (pebblesheen,3" pucks) but the indoor pool is giving me fits.
Indoor pool,19,000 gallons, sand filter, pebblesheen, 3" triclor pucks, pump runs 24/7, auto-cover is closed most of the time as it has only been swam in a couple of times over the winter, pool was new last year. Everything stayed fairly close to balance until the last 3 weeks or so and now I am not sure where to start.
I was testing with a smaller test kit but the Taylor K-2006C came in today and ran a full test.
FC/CL--Sample turned pink after adding R-0870 and after 50 drops of R-0871 it was still pink
TA--After adding regents sample turned blue (not green) 20 drops of R-0012 turned it yellow (not red) and after 70 drops it was still yellow
CH--After adding regents sample turned light pink (not red)after adding 5 drops of R-0012 sample turned light purple and was still that color after 50 drops
CYA--Level doesn't reach the scale..can't see dot after 25 drops so best estimate is 250-300?
I also tested with a Aquacheck test strip and came up with
Let me know if any more information is needed and any help is greatly appreciated.
BTW...the pool water is crystal clear
