    Cloudy Taylor Reaget

    I use a taylor K-2005 and on several pools i service and when i add the first reagent R- 001 the water turns a milky white color. On one specific pool that it happens, this was the last reading
    10,000 gal, gunite, sand mini max heater, aqua rite SWG
    FC 4
    PH 7.6
    TA 80
    CYA 50
    Salt 3000


    I thought it might have someing to do with the salt but it also happens in another pool that is on Triclor tabs?
    Any thoughts or directions ? I was thinking about contacting Taylor Tech but you guys seem to know way more lol. Thanks for all the info you have posted, it has really helped out. I'm still battling with how to apply all i've learned to my service, i have a small company maintaining about 30 residential pools so it hard. The funest job i've ever had though!
    PS Thanks ChemGeek for letting me know how much i don't know

    Welcome to TFP!

    Must of us do not use the DPD test, so I am not sure what is going on, although likely someone will be along to help.

    Upgrade to the FAS-DPD

    Welcome to tfp, southernpoolboy

    I'm with jbliz, the FAS-DPD test (used in combination with the OTO test when just a quick check is needed) is a much better choice than the DPD test.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Thank you for the welcome, and yes the more i read the more i realize that will be my next upgrade. But until then i was just wondering if there was something i was overlooking. It doesn't seem to affect the results of the test. Thanks again for all the time you guys and gals put into this site.

    R-0001 is a PH buffer, that will raise the PH a little. It could cause calcium clouding (depending on other levels).
