New TF-100 results (wish I had known about discount for membership, would have done that...):
FC - 2.5 + CC - .5 = TC - 3
PH - ~7.1
TA - 80
CH - 420
CYA - 70 I think, this is a hard one to be sure...
Borates from new test strip somewhere between 15 and 25, hard to tell exact shade.
Water is perhaps 85% clear (been clearing every day since I started attempting BBB) and starting to get that soft water sheen and feel. Smells fine. Filter (4 cleaned Sunday, showing good. Last couple weeks had algae problem, now clearing up. Added 5 boxes Borax over the last week, one gallon acid, 4 gallons 10% pool liquid chlorine, probably 8 containers pure bleach.
How are the other numbers and advice? Brushing every day. Not much of anything anywhere except dust on shallow deck where pool cleaner does not go.
Thanks. Great forum. Happy to help when I can.
