    Got My TF-100 Test Kit - My Results

    FC- 5
    CC- 0
    TA- 120
    PH- 7.6
    CH- 100
    CYA- 35

    My pool gets full, direct sun, morning until late afternoon/early evening.
    Should I raise CYA level?
    Should I be concerned with raising CH level even though I have vinyl liner?
    BTW-water is clear.

    Thanks

    Pretty darn good numbers.

    I would raise CYA to 50ppm given your sun conditions.

    I would CH alone.

    How does your water look?

    Water looks good to me. Deep end is 8 feet, very clear all the way down.

    BTW...I edited my numbers to change TA from 100 to 120 (I mis-typed the first time).

    I did all the tests twice, to make sure my numbers were consistent.

    I added stabilizer 2 days ago, so I'll check level again in a few days.

    Also, I have one of those tan liners that so many people complain makes the water look green -- but I like the look of it.



    Many thanks to all on this site.

    I know it's been said thousands of times but -- if it weren't for this site and my TF-100, I 'd hate to think what condition my pool would be in.
