I have a couple of questions:
1. My husband has found 3 dead shrews in our skimmer in the last 2 weeks. I really appreciate that he didn't tell me about this as I just can't handle dead animals in the pool, but since I handle the pool chemistry it would have been useful info. It probably explains why I saw the the CC drift up to 0.5 last week when our CC is always 0.
2. Here are our numbers today (Taylor K-2006)
(I'm working on getting our CYA up and put 2 lbs in yesterday. I'm also doing the acid/aerate thing to get the TA down.)
I'm concerned about my test drops for CH. when I put the R-0011L in I don't get red, I get tiny pink flakes. As I add the R-0012, the flake turn blue. Are the flakes normal? I swirl and swirl, but they don't dissolve. I bought my test kit last August and the drops are the original ones that came with the kit. I also had my pool store run tests and they came up with 60 for my CH.
3. What's the best place to buy CH? My pool store has 25 lbs for $50. Hoping to get it cheaper I checked all the big box stores with no luck.
Thanks for the help.
