Had the water tested today in 2 pool stores and the results are:
1. store: TDS 100
Free chlorine 0
Total Alk 128
Adj Total Alk 123
Total Hardness 208
This is a Bioguard test but only with strips.
Tot Chlorine 8
Free Chlorine 3
Total Alk 139
Adj Total Alk 139
Total Hardness 188
This is also a Bioguard test but with drops.
The lady there just changed the Free Chlorine on the printout to 8 and told me to disregard the 14 bags of shock it recommended because she felt that that result was not right.
Needless to say they wanted me to buy a whole bunch of stuff as always and this time I just had enough. Now I need help how to get started with the BBB method.
I have a 24 round ABG with a sandfilter.
