    New accurate beginning

    OK guys and gals...got my TF-100 the other day, but couldn't test since it was raining.
    Rained quite a bit yesterday too. Didn't rain today and got out late this afternoon and
    tested. Pump had been running since 11am. Tested at 5:30pm. Water temp was 90.
    Pool water is crystal clear.

    FC - 2.5
    CC - 0 remained clear after adding R-0003
    pH - 7.8
    TA - 150
    CH - 0 remained clear after adding R-0011L
    CYA - 20

    Anything look out of wack? Any test you think I should repeat?

    When you did the CH test did you add the 20 drops of R-0010 before the 5 drops of R-0011L? It is very unlikely that it is 0. While low (no) CH is fine for a vinyl pool I question the validity of the test.

    Unless this is an indoor pool, CYA is very low for SWCG. You should target 70-80. Once you get the CYA up you should target FC at 5 or 6.

    Yes...I did add the 20 drops of R-0010 before the R-0011L. But I will test again tomorrow since it's raining again.
    The low CYA doesn't surprise me. Not sure if any stabilizer was added or how much. Pool has only been in operation
    since the first week of June when constuction ended.
