Hi everyone! My test kit got here yesterday and I took a full set of readings:
FC - 12.5
pH - 7.4
TA - 120
CH - 360
CYA - 60
I tried doing the CC test, but after I turned the sample clear I added reagent to make it pink again. All I got was a light pink after 5 drops, is that pink enough? If so, my sample turned pink after 5 drops.
I'm a little worried about my CH, my tap water CH is 210 but for some reason the pool is much higher. The previous owners may have been using Cal-Hypo products... i'm also not 100% sure that the "shock" bags that Leslie's gave me didn't have a lot of calcium in them.
I have already lowered the TA down to 120 from 150 using MA and aeration. Should it be a little lower?
Thanks for all your help, and the speedstir I ordered with my kit is AWESOME!!!
