Im currently using some cheap HTH test strips from Wal-Mart and was curious if i should start adding chlorine now or wait til I have a better test kit to get more than just a guess at numbers.
Current readings from the strips are as follows:
CH 150-200 (hard to gauge)
Pool hasn't been opened in several years. I've nearly completed raking all leaves and debris off the bottom but still have a significant amount of algae / suspended solids.
Camera is dead i'll post images soon.
My main questions fall back to these test strips. Can I trust these numbers? I see that the Taylor K-2006 is one of the recommended kits how does a K-2005 compare to this? I've been able to find these locally should I purchase the 2005 to start getting better readings or wait for a TF-100 / K-2006 to ship.
Thanks for the help in advance.
