    Taylor K-1000 Readings

    Are the numbers in columns FC? So if the color matches the 4 spot, is my FC 4?IMG_2018.JPG I know one number is for chlorine and the other is Bromine I think.

    The first column of numbers under Cl are for chlorine. The second column of numbers under Br are for bromine. This applies to the left/yellow side. Ph readings on the right/pink side.
    So if you are matching the 4 that is for bromine and 2 is your chlorine reading.

    If there are drops in the left vial, your FC is 0. May I suggest using the FAS-DPD test for your FC/CC?

    Your pH looks very high, but it could be the pic.

    That was an old pic for reference. My pH currently is 7.3 or so. Is the Cl accurate enough to plug into pool math or do I need to do the power test that's in the TF-100 on a daily basis to maintain my Cl?

    I use the block 2 or 3 times a week to verify that there IS chlorine, and that the yellow is dark enough to be near the 5 level, and that the pH isn't getting too high.
    The TF 100 gets used about once a week now that I have everything pretty much dialed in and stable.
