Got my TF-100 kit today...been playing ever since I got off work.
Here are the results:
*TA - The first time I ran the test, I squeezed the R-0009, and it came out as a fine mist! There was no way to count drops. It eventually became drops, but they are significantly smaller than the drops from all the other bottles. I put in a drop, wiped the dropper, drop, wipe, etc. and I finally got an insane number of 640! And that doesn't include the fine mist in the beginning. Tried the test again and came up with 330. I still think my drops of R-0009 are too small - they are definitely smaller than all the other droppers.
And this is well water - would that affect TA? So maybe it is that high?
**CYA - I put in approx 4 lbs of stablizer Wed 12 Jun (5 days ago). I thought my filter was ready to clean on Saturday (due to psi) so I cleaned it...forgot about leaving it for 1 week for the CYA to soak in. And it still hasn't been a full week for the CYA to fully dissolve.
Proposed Plan of Action:
I'm thinking, retest CYA in a day or two. Add less than a gallon of 6% bleach to get it to 3.5. Retest TA or lower pH and aerate.
