Hello to everyone out there. My husband and I just registered this afternoon. I am sorry to butt in on someone else's post, but embarrassingly, I do not know how to post (never posted or asked a question of anyone via internet before) and it seems I have to post via someone else's topic of the same nature. If I have this wrong, please be kind to me and tell me how to start my own post. We are at our wit's end with our pool or shall I say "swamp" and can't get an FC reading after adding 3 one gallon jugs of liquid chlorine since Sat. aft. I understand we need to post test result so I will provide what I can.
TC: not registering or at the very least 0.5
pH: Between 6.8 and 7.2
TA: between 80 and 120
CYA: 0 or close to it
I do not have any fancy testing kits and yes, I think I will have to invest in one, but presently, our pool's well-being is reliant upon these test strips.
