Three months into being the concerned owner of a sometimes lovely pool I decided that I did not like blindly doing/buying what the guy at the pool store told/sold me to.
So after spending many hours here stalking you fine folks, I made the move and ordered the Taylor K-2006. Below are my results. I think I have a basic understanding of how to get the results now I need you to help point me in the direction of what to do with them. PLEASE!
CH 870 (not sure if this can be right?)
CYA sample turned cloudy after adding only a few drops, so I'd guess many hundreds
Oh also the pool has an issue with mustard algae, small amounts form on the side wall in two places. I attempted to clear up by following the pool stores instructions only to have it return in a few days. I now have a better understanding of why that didn't work. For now I am more concerned about getting everything else into line. Other than that, the pool looks ok. Although it has gotten a little cloudy the last couple days.
