    Hi, Just receied , my TF 100 test kit

    Hello all,

    I just received my TF test kit, and here are my numbers!

    FC: 3.5

    CC: .5

    CYA 30

    CH: 125

    Alk 110

    Ph 7.8


    I currently have trichlor tabs in the pool.


    I have a 25,000 gallon plaster pool, and the water is crystal clear! Any suggestions?

    Leave it all alone. Test every few days at first to see that nothing is trending. Your CYA will rise slowly but not enough to get you in trouble before you close your pool.

    Glad I purchased this kit. Leslie's was showing that I had 70 cya and 240 alk where as this kit showed I had 30 which aligned with the test strips I had. Also they wanted me to buy phosfree which after reading these forums I declined.

    Over the next few days you will likely be tempted to go back to Leslies to have them test again. Don't do it. What would you do if it disagreed with your results?.....it would create doubt and no good will come from it.

    You have the most accurate, cost-effective kit you can buy and NOBODY at Leslies cares for your pool like you do.

    Trust your own testing!! (nice work

    Welcome to TFP wizmaster

    Please add your pool and equipment info to your signature as outlined here: - - > Pool School - Getting Started

    I think I'd add a little muratic acid to lower that pH a bit. Maybe more like 7.4
    At a CYA of 30 you should try to keep your FC at 4 and no less than 2.

    Sure, I updated my signature. Once the rain passes, I'l re-test and adjust the pH to 7.4. Thanks!
