I am waiting on my TF-100 test kit, so I took a water sample to a nearby pool store for testing and they said my chlorine levels were too high, which I found very suspect. I did three strip tests over the last two days and each test indicated the exact opposite - my chlorine levels are too LOW (not by a lot, but certainly not above 8 ppm which they were saying). I pumped in the relevant info into The Pool Calculator and it told me exactly how much 6% bleach to add. How easy is that?!
It will be nice to be able to independently maintain our pool, with some timely advice from fellow TFP members of course!
