First Test Result using a brand new TF100 test kit!!! My second post to the forum. Great site and plenty of useful information. Wish I had come up to this site much much earlier - 5th year pool owner. Tired of spending way too much listening to pool store suggestions.
Test performed 06/08/2010 evening after sun down. No use of the pool by any member in the family.
FC - 13
CC - 0
pH - 7.2
TA - 130
CH - 510
CYA - 60
Borates - N/A
I had poured in a gallon of chlorine (10%) yesterday morning. My SWG is busted with damage to the cell and the power boards. Working on getting it replaced. I also have brown spot at different locations in the pool - size of a penny - not quite a perfect circle always. Any amount of brushing is useless.
Performed a overnight FC loss test and FC came down by 1 ppm and read 12 ppm this morning. Again no CC.
I am concerned about the high CH value. Any suggestions? Pool calculator suggests to drain 49% of the pool water and fill it with new fill water. Not sure about the CH on the fill water. Want to eventually get to BBB treatment and maintenance, but I think I have long ways to go.
