    Topic Split off from this thread by Moderator

    Just got my new test kit Here are my numbers. 27K IG.

    FC: 6.5
    CC: .5
    TC: 7.0
    pH: 7.5
    T/A: 220
    CH: 220
    CYA: 60
    Temp: 80
    Water Condition: Crystal Clear; after a long struggle with copper staining and cloudiness.

    I'm concerned that my TA is too high.

    Scott, on the TA test ...did you wipe the tip of the R-0009 dropper bottle in between each drop, with a damp cloth?

    Welcome to TFP by the way.

    No, I did not. Seemed a bit ridiculous but if that's what's needed, I'll try again. Using my HTH test, I get numbers well below that...like 150.

    LOL yeah, it's static electricity, a known issue with that reagent/bottle and it causes irregular drop sizes to form and skew the results.

    I don't see anything in your results that would cause the issue described in the original post...
