discovered this forum last wednesday, ordered my tftkit and received it friday afternoon. spent the weekend analyzing the water and am ready to post some test results.
First the back story; ordered and had installed a 27' above ground kit from local pool co. last fall. Used it 2 times and closed for winter using the supplied winterizing kit.
Opened 10 days ago and water was crystal clear. Used test strips and noted zero FC, stabilizer and low pH.
Over the last 5 days Ive added 4 1 pound bags of stablizer from pool mart, and just curious about such low CYA readings.
Im consuming about 2.5-3 FC a day. Pool is in direct sunlight the entire day, I dont use solar cover.
OK here's my readings from an hour ago ( note I added 3 qts of bleach about 5pm est. tests performed at 830 est
did the CC and measured .5 so my
TC should be 5.0?
CYA less than 20 ( could still see black dot just a lil')
temp 70 (questionable cruddy thermometer)
as mentioned in the title, thanks to you folks 1000% Ive already passed this site along to 6 or 7 people i work with today alone
