First time pool owner here.
I've been trying to read up the pool school links and bought a K-2006. Followed the directions, and a little disappointed I couldn't get two of the tests to register at all.... here are my results:
Jandy SWG that I believe is not currently working (sys error #172 & 180)
Chlorine Test - Couldn't get it to register (not true... but after adding three times the suggested amount of dippers worth of 870 and having no color change I thought I'd stop before wasting more).
pH Test - 8.0 - 2 drops acid demand test
Total Alkalinity - 120 ppm
Calcium Hardness - 260 ppm
CYA - didn't cloud up the water one bit so black dot never disappeared
I went to the local pool store that friends had suggested, just to see if their test would register anything on the stuff that I couldn't get a register on... here is the results of that test:
FC - .1
TC - .33
CC - .23
PH - 7.9
TA - 125
CA - 312
CYA - 8
They suggested Chlorine obviously, but I didn't buy any because they don't sell plain LC without additives. - looks like 3lbs? of their stuff was their recommendation. (pool calculator *if I did it right* suggests 226oz 6% bleach)
They also suggested acid which I have some muriatic acid here already. - 1/3gal (pool calculator suggests 55oz)
They suggested stabilizer. Their preferred brand is Pool Breeze Stabilizer and Conditioner. I bought it thinking I could come home and if recommended against this brand I could take it back unopened. - 3lbs was their suggestion (pc = 7lbs?)
Thank you for any help in advance, hope I included all the required info.
