I just got my Taylor 2006 test in yesterday. I've done as much reading as I can on here and in Pool School. New pool owner. Installed last Sat. Water was filled with 2.5 loads from a water delivery truck and about 8 hrs worth of water from our well, that has the faucet connected to an iron filter.
So this was the results this morning:
FC: 28 ppm
CC: 0 ppm
CYA: no reading
For my questions:
1. From what I've read on here, it's ok to get 0 for CYA if I am doing the sock method, as it doesn't register until about a week, correct? I checked the sock this morning (it's been in for 2 days) and there's still a lot of granules in there (it's a tall sock). I've been squeezing with my hand about once per day.
2. For CH, I read that should be under 300? How do I decrease it, or will that come down with time since it was just filled last week?
3. For TA, if I understand correctly, if I get my PH in line, the TA will go down, correct?
4. How do I translate the 28 ppm for FC into a single digit #? I've read it should be between 3 and 5...Or is that telling me my FC is very high? I put in 2 gal of liquid chlorine this morning as the FC was reading 0.
I did my FC wrong. The correct reading is 11 ppm. And I used 10% liquid chlorine.
