This is just a general rant, but I have come to the realization that test strips suck..
Took a while to get my CYA where i needed it considering the strip reads 0, 30-50, 100. And both 0 and 30-50 are almost an identical color.
Now the other morning I tested my FC after the SWG had finished, and it was normally at around 3. This time it was less than 1ppm. So I put some bleach in and got the FC to about 4 and tested it after the sun had gone down and it was still 4. I woke up the next morning and tested it again and it was at 0ppm.
Now here lies more problems with the strips. I used the pool calc and poured in the amount of bleach it told me to so that i can get my FC 20-24. But I have no idea whether it got that high or not because my test strips only read to 10 and the color the strip turned is close to 6, 8, and 10 so i just have to hope that it got there. My problem is I don't know how much bleach to keep adding to keep it there.
My pool wasn't really cloudy but for it to go from 4 to 0 in a span of only 8-10 hours had me worried.
Sure would be nice if my TF100 came in, but it hasn't moved from FedEx facility in 4 days now.
