My TF100 came today with all the bells and whistles! I got the speedstir, a copper test kit and a salt test kit too. I followed all the instructions and here's what I got:
CC: 1 (maybe .5, I wasn't 100% sure on this one)
CYA: 0 (this is a weird test, I filled the whole vile and the black dot didn't change at all. Am I doing it right?)
I plugged all my numbers into pool math and I have a few questions... First I'll tell you what pool math says to do:
I used these as my target numbers:
Add 36oz of 8.25% bleach (that's it?? That's not even half a gallon?? Oh, and how do I know it's 8.25%?)
Add 12oz of muriatic acid (where do I get this and how would I measure it? The word acid just scares me a little)
Add 77oz (by weight) stabilizer (can I trust the one from the pool store? I read here that pool store chemicals tend to have other chemicals mixed in as well. Otherwise, where can I get it?)
Should I pick up dichlor at the pool store, I remember reading here that it also has stabilizer and can lower the pH - would that solve all my problems in one shot?
I have 2 gallons of what I think is 8.25% bleach in the house already. Everything else will have to wait until I can go shopping tomorrow. Should I put the bleach in tonight? Should I put in a whole gallon?
Any advice is appreciated
