First, this forum is awesome. I did my first tests this morning and was able to find answers to most of my questions using the search.
Here are my results
With TF-100 and Pentair tests I tested TC at around 2 or 3, I really have a hard time reading that yellow......
So, I interpret these numbers as CYA low. I should try to raise it to 30. Pool Math says I should add 52 oz of liquid, and 20-21 oz by weight/volume of powder. What is the best stabilizer to buy? I have a Sylvan, Leslie's, and an independent pool store nearby so can probably find whatever you recommend. I don't mind paying for the liquid this time since it is so hot out right now and my FC is so low.
Also, the FC is low and should get it to 4 when the CYA is 30. I should really SLAM it. But....
I am leaving on vacation in 2 days and will be gone for almost 2 weeks. My husband will be home but at work from early morning until dark and it is very unrealistic to ask him to maintain a SLAM level (12) while I am gone. The most I can do is ask him to dump chlorine in every day if I tell him how much.
Should I bring it to SLAM for just 2 days then let it fall back down? Or just bring it to target and leave it? And for the time I am gone what should I tell my husband to add (in the evenings)?
Thanks in advance. I can tell many of you put a lot of time every day into answering questions and I appreciate it very much.
