    Miscellaneous testing questions

    I just bought the TF100 and so far so good ... i am working on my pool in another thread

    just some generic questions

    1 - is the only ph test the simple daily one?

    2 - is there a best time to test?

    3 - is there a best time to add chemicals? .... how long until i retest?

    4 - the instructions say to do the simple test daily and the complete one weekly??... i assume that is after getting things going properly?

    5- for the calculator i assume i should use the troublefree pool goals .... are there any other variables aside from my pool size i need to change?

    thanks

    1) Yes.
    2) It varies. It is good to test FC in the evening. But CYA tests are best done on sunny days. Neither are critical.
    3) Yes, and no. Adding chlorine in the evenings has advantages but is not crucial.
    4) Yes.
    5) Pool size is the important one. Some people like to setup their pool type, but that only affects the displayed ranges.
