Testing right now with a Taylor 2005.
I been reading posts on this website and formerly on the poolforum.com since the end of last summer which has been a tremendous help and have been able to keep my pool sparlkling clean ever since thanks to you guys/gals. It's nice to have a forum with so many people sharing their knowledge and experiences. So thank you for your time; It is much appreciated.
So last week I have just opened up my pool for this summer and I think I have everything as close as I can get it, but let me know what you think.
Pool is a 12,500g AG.
TC I keep between 3-6ppm by adding 96oz. (3 quarts) 6% bleach every other day (so far). Would it be better to add 1/2 jug every day than 1 jug every other day? For instance does the small chlorine swing affect any other parameters.
PH 7.5 (looks between 7.4 and 7.6)
ALK 80 (Was at 60 so I added baking soda to get to 80 and PH was correct so it stayed at 80)??????
Water looks great. Should I bump up the ALK then bring PH down or is 80 fine. Should I bump up my CYA? It seems pretty stable right where it is and I'm pretty happy with it I guess. I just have a tendecy to keep messing with things.
Also I would like to purchase another test kit as mine is about used up & I would like one that will read higher chlorine levels. I read about the Taylor 2006k? or something similar and also read the post on here about Dave's test kit which looks very nice. Which kit is the preffered?
Thanks again for all your help.
