First I just want to say that NOTHING irritates me more than when I type a post and my air card loses connection when I submit it and the post is lost!! Lucky for you, the reader, I don't feel like typing the whole thing over again...I'm long winded. I'll just make it short and sweet.
I am merely testing my fill water (well water) to get a feel for the testing and see what I'm starting with before adding anything to it. Pool has yet to be put up.
FC: Does not turn pink immediately. It has been about 10 minutes now and the solution is the slightest shade of pink. Thoughts? I'm guessing this just means my FC is 0 because it takes 0 drops of R-871 to turn it clear (and the smaller test in the blue box told me I have 0 chlorine )
pH: Blue kit measures 8.2. This can't be good.
TA: I am up to 25 drops of R-0009...do I just keep going? This can't be good either huh?! Each drop is red when it hits the solution but disappears when I swirl it.
CYA: 0 as expected.
Am I just not holding my mouth right or what?! Any input is appreciated! Thanks!
