3 weeks ago I removed the "puck" and went with this BBB method and a TF100 kit ..
I do the "major" TF100 test once per week, I do the "blue kit" that came with the TF100 test kit almost every day for the CL & PH - as a sanity check.
This is the 3rd week ... results below .. Clearly the FC is way too low @ 1.5 .. I've had it up to 4.0 just 2 days ago (blue test kit) biut didn't add any since ... So I JUST added 354 oz bleach to the system (6%) ... I am amazed at just how much bleach I'm putting into the pool on a daily basis - anywhere from 80 oz to 250 oz. Is that normal? (Previous "pool service" used the Trichlor pucks - she showed up to "adjust" with liquid just once per week!!!) I am not adding anything else based on PC-... e.g., MA, Soda, etc... I removed the PoolRx mineral thing from the filter 2 weeks ago. The CYA is still hovering at 60ppm ... and I continue to add water to dilute things & bump up the water skimmer water level about every 3 days. I would have to add that I *think* the pool is a bit cloudy .. but not sure what "normal" crystal clear is ... Could be clearer, not sure. I'm *this close* to dumping in a "crystal clear adjustment solution" sold by the pool store - what am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance....
