OKay all, My pool finished filling yesterday. I went to the pool store to get some dichlor and ended up with Zip Chlor concentrate. Here is a link to the instructions incase you are unfamiliar with it. http://www.proteampoolcare.com/san_zipchlor.htm It seems they call for alot less of that than HTH Stabilizer. I put 11 OZ in last night. The test kit I got was the HTH kit from Wally World, due to not much time left for pool time this year and not wanting to spend the money on the TF100 until next year. Anywho, here are the results today after work of that kit
Chlorine was barely registered, I would say less than 1 (kit measures Total Chlorine)
I would guess that the CYA is still very low since the Chlorine is next to nothing right now. Should I just discontinue the Zip Chlor and just go ahead and do the Chorox and HTH Stabilizer? Or do you think I should try another dose of Zip Chlor tonight and test CYA tomorrow? This test kit only came with 2 tests for CYA, so I want to be able to have something to measure before I start measuring. The pool store I went to didnt seem to think that CYA was a big deal...my guess is so that they sell more Chlorine??
