    Help me remember how to use theK-2006 test kit

    Pool after testing is showing no FC PH is 7.9 and Alka 140 ppm pool is cloudy and a little (very little) green. Hubby is just using test strips which shows everything fine...........well obvious it's not thus the color and cloudiness....he just keeps dumping shock and baking soda for no reason....HELP!!!
    What is normal PH and ALKA?
    Thanks!

    Have you review Pool School? Everything is still there in the articles.

    Baking soda is a BAD idea since the TA is already pretty high.

    If you have the K2006, why did you not post a full set of results:

    pH should be 7.2 - 7.8 Lower end is better for the shock process.
    TA should be roughly 70 or above. If it's over 120, don't increase it any.
    Green water means algae which means bleach is needed. Lots of it. The shock process.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
