While waiting for my test kit. i used test strips to get TH. reading then multiplied that number times 2/3.

to get an estimate of my CH. Don't know if this is correct? but tried it.

I did the lower PH. and add acid for two days. and aerate.

My #'s today:

FC-3

TC-3

PH 7.5

TA-90

CH-90

CYA-40

Been holding these numbers for two days now.

Am I looking at fantasy numbers because of my method for reaching the CH. level?

The pool looks sparkly and clean. Should I just keep the free chlorine up in range until the test kit arrives on 8/9/16?

Thank You in advance..This looks like a really simple routine once I get my initial numbers in check.
