Some of you may recall my last thread where I was anticipating my new Taylor 2006 kit. On the up side my CYA levels weren't nearly as high as the pool store's computer told me (150) and now I am ready to get my pool in check.
Just a quick rundown - currently using two sticks of trichlor until they disolve in the skimmer then repeating as necessary.
Free Chlorine - Couldn't get it to turn pink so I assume this means Zero
Combined Chlorine 1 - very very light pink one dropped turned it clear again.
PH - 7.0 (color was on the light side but very close)
Total Alk 60
Clacium Hardness 190 - this doesn't seem right, repeated the test again.
Cyanuric Acid 72 (however the dot kept disapeering and then coming back, not sure if I did this exactly right)
So, I want to jump right into the BBB and start saving money - was told that if I posted numbers I would receive help getting pool in check.
Also, the previous owner of this home left an entire case of powder shock - don't know if I can use this or not to help my situation?
