    Hello everyone Just got my Taylor test kit

    Hello everyone Just got my Taylor test kits K-2006C and K-1766 and tested my water last night and here are the numbers.

    FC 2.6
    CC .2
    PH 7.8
    TA 90
    CH 180
    CYA 55
    Salt 3200

    I don't think they are to bad of numbers. Need to run my SWG a little longer to get my FC up.
    Above ground 22 X 52 Intex pool with Columbia 22 inch High performance sand filter with 2 Hp pump. Intex krystal clear saltwater system and ozone. Installed wide mouth skimmer. Pool is plumed with 1-1/2" PVC. Install Curve in-pool steps model CCX-AG. Pool was installed on a sand base with 1-1/2" blue Styrofoam.

    Numbers look good. Except FC is too low for your CYA. Round up your CYA to 60 and keep FC above minimum at all times, FC/CYA Chart. When FC drops below minimum the pool unsanitary and bacteria, pathogens and algae can grow.

    You can use a 10ml sample of pool water for FC and CC. You multiply the drop count by 0.5 (or divide by 2). It will use less reagent. The directions are on the inner lid of your testkit.
