First off, I have a K-2006 kit on order, so don't beat me! I picked up an hth 6-way kit from WalMart this morning just to have something to test with.
New AG Intex 16' x 48", just finished filling last night with city water.
I have spent the last hour searching the forums but cannot seem to understand how to interpret the Cl Br results on the hth test and translate to TC.
I'm attaching a photo of my test results. (click to embiggen)
It appears that TC is .5 ppm. And from my Pool School perusal, my TC goal is 6ppm? I'm doing BBB so I intend to add bleach to achieve this level, using the the Pool Calculator. I also need to determine if I need to shock since this result seems so low.
(Also my pH is 7.2, which is nice, since I did absolutely nothing to achieve it. )
TH no idea -- black dot never disappeared, but since this is a fresh fill, I guess that's normal... right? (Please say it's normal)
I just need someone to hold my hand, pat my head and tell me it's gonna be OK. Thanks.
