    Ken's Simpel Pool App

    Tonight I measured my TC at 10.5 and CC at 0.5. This puts my FAC at 10. Simple Pool has my range at 4 - 8 and said I was within range. Just for kicks, I input measurements of 20, 30, 40 and so on, all the way to Simple Pool's max of 80 and the advice section still said I was within range. Huh???

    Pool: IG 22k- 16x32 clipped corners- vinyl liner, w/ a great board. Built in 3/99, new to me 2/2011.
    Equip: Hayward 3600 DE filter, Hayward CL-200 Chlorinator (empty since 7/5/2013).
    K-2006 Test kit with Speedstir
    Located in Cincinnati, OH. TFP lurker since 9/2011, BBB interested since 5/2012 and converted 7/2013.

    I use simple pool, and it always says your FC is in range if it is above the minimum specified level (does not check max, perhaps because it just assumes one is shocking). I don't find this much of an issue, and nearly all the other chem checks seem to work fine.

    Currently, SimplePool does not provide any specific advice when you measure chlorine levels above the calculated max/target level.
    I have just modified the program to state:
    "Your current FC level is too high. do not add additional chlorine. Your FC level will fall over time."

    This update will be rolled into the next release.

    Thanks for pointing this out.
