    Test Results

    Hello folks,

    Just wondering if someone could double check my results. I used my tf kit and also brought my water to the local pool company for testing.
    I think my levels are right on per the boards recommendations but the pool folks told me the levels are WAY off and hes surprised my pool is clear.

    Heres my test results:

    FC 4
    pH 7.7
    TA 100
    CH 113
    CYA 45

    Thanks,

    Leo

    The pool store is sad because they have nothing to sell you.

    I think that you look good with those numbers.

    Thanks 257WbyMag.

    Nothing to sell????

    They wanted to sell me the following (when my wife brought the list home I just laughed)

    Add 12 lbs of Alkalinity
    Add 5 pounds of Lo N Slo
    Add 4 pounds of Hardness
    Add 4 bags of shock (8.00 a bag!!)
    Add one bottle of algae inhibitor

    I totalled this up and the price was 100 plus!!!

    Your numbers look fine as long as you are using bleach or cal-hypo as a chlorine source.
