I've been workin' the steps for about a week, and I'm so close now that I don't want to accidentally make any steps backwards.
Thanks in advance! I am using a TF50 test kit.
Last night, our FC was at 12, and this morning DH said it tested at 11.5. However I tested the same sample again when I was running the full scope of tests and I came out with 10.5. It has been sitting on the counter, out of direct sunlight, for a couple of hours. Would that matter?
FC: (either 11.5 or 10.5) see above
CYA won't test accurately because we added 2 big socks yesterday, so I didn't run it. We did that wrong. We put the socks in front of the water jet, but that didn't work out as well as I had hoped. We have small undissolved flakes in the water.
CYA is part of my question. We still have some vacuuming to do. How do we keep the CYA level calculated and maintained properly if it takes a week to dissolve and we're vacuuming to waste?
Also, besides vacuuming, what else should we be doing now?
