I set up my pool 10 days ago. I was using the aquachek 7 way test strips before but I had a really hard time matching the colors so I decided to splurge for the tf100 kit and I received it today.
6/16 Intex 3 way test strip results
Using the pool calculator, we added 120oz of baking soda and 8oz of borax...Big Mistake! I knew we should have added the chemicals little by little instead of all at once.
6/18 Aquachek 7 way test strip results
temp: 67 degrees
6/24 tf100 kit results:
temp: 69 degrees
A few questions about the tf100 kit. For the ta test, they say add r0009 until the color changes to red. The color change from green to pink at 14 drops from me. I kept adding drops(24) and the color turned deeper pink but it never turned red. Is it really supposed to turn red or is pink good enough?
Why dont they have a more accurate test for ph above 8.2? My results was a deeper pink than 8.2.
As for the cya test, I filled the test tube all the way to the top but I still see the black dot so I assume that means my cya is 0. Is that correct?
I just put in 12oz ph down using the pool calculator and will let my filter pump run 24 hrs before retesting tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
