I have the TF100 test kit. My CYA is 60-70, so my target FC is 7-8 ppm. The Taylor Chlorine/pH test kit only reads to 5 ppm.
Question, daily usage with the FAS DPD test kit can get expensive when I have to order the refills every couple of months. Is there any other option to verify the FC level on a daily basis over 5 ppm?
Better question, once I get used to chlorinating manually with bleach, do most people test daily and add chlorine daily, or will I get to the point where it is only once or twice a week. Also, will I get to where I can just add a certain amount, like 64 ounces of bleach, twice a week, and then test less frequently?
In other words, just curious how people schedule the BBB "lifestyle" into their daily routine (around work, kids, etc.). I'm eager to get full fledged into BBB, but want to hear how people make it work.
Lastly, my 4 year old is watching me type and is dying to see a smiley in the message...so here's her selection:
