I bought the TF-100 test kit and the Speed Stir and Salt Test Strips
CL 0 no change water was still clear
BR 0 no change
PH 7.5 or 7.8
used R870 1 heaping scoop no change said it would turn pink
R003 added according to inst. no change water still clear
Alkalinity Test added 2 drops 0007 no change, added 0008 -5 drops changed to green then added 0009 and turned it pink with 10 drops
added 3 more drops still pink. But a dark pink was supposed to be red. (Maybe that is what the red is supposed to look like.
Salt strips 5.8
I added a bottle of 6% bleach about an hour ago, AFTER these test results.
I also purchased 20 mule team Borax as suggested for the BBB
Any recommendations on what to do next? I have looked at the Pool Calculator. (And I have never been good in Chemistry classes! )
