Hi everybody, this is my first posting of test results since our pool was built in January of this year. Please let me just mention that I was foolish enough to take a sample of our water to Leslie's about a month ago and after finding my CH level to be 160ppm they suggested I add 20 pounds of Hardness Plus which I did. Soon after my pool was full of white flakes and an accumulation of what looked like white sand. I assume this is calcium. Yesterday, my PH level was a brighter pink than the top of the scale pink on the TF100 kit so I used the pool calculator which suggested I add 40oz of muriatic acid, which I did. I'm obviously getting nowhere fast hence I got here ASAP.
Pool temp 91 degrees
FC - 2
CC - 0
PH - 8.2 or higher as it was almost a brighter pink than top of scale of TF100.
CL Br on test kit - 1 2
TA - 170, although the color was pink not red.
CH - 350
CYA - Filled the tube all the way to the top and could still see the black dot.
SWG set at 3300 ppm
I just want to say how much I appreciate all the patience you all show answering these questions ad nauseum.
