I'm assuming that I can't use the TF-100 to test for Bromine (except for the K-1000 kit that came with it.) But, will the pH, TA, CH tests be accurate? I'm trying to convert my brother to the joys of chlorine and the BBB method. He just went to a local pool store, which will remain nameless, and spent $200 on chemicals, i.e. a lot of alkalinity increaser and calicum increaser. I told him that his calcium level doesn't need to be so high because he has a vinyl pool. And he can increase his alkalinity with baking soda. And maybe save a few bucks. Am I on the right track here?
Thanks from the Northcoast
