I only had test strips so I brought my water sample to the local Leslies store to be tested. Here is what the results were.
So I proceded to do the acid-aerate treatment to get my TA in line. After pouring in 10 gallons of acid over the past 2 weeks I was making progress on the TA. Then two days ago, my test kit arrives and I do my OWN testing. This is waht I get.
As you can see, the acid-aeration was working (notice the drop in the TA). But, now look at my CYA! They said it was 65 and it's really 200. So now I get to drain 65% of my pool water and start all over. I just wasted 10 gallons of acid and two weeks of time. So frustrated right now with Leslies and their pool water testing. Another reason to BUY YOUR OWN TEST KIT!
