    Got my TF 100 test kit. Here's the numbers and a question or

    Hey Dave,

    Excellent kit, I am very impressed with how many tests I can perform with it, great job!!!

    Plus the pool store doesnt have a clue if you ask me, (they told me my FC and CC was all out of wack). I waited for the test kit to come before doing anything else ( I added some Baking soda on their recommendation before I ordered the kit and found all you great people) and I am glad I did, find you guys/gals that is!!! They did tell me that my TA was really low so a few days ago I added about 2/3 of what they said to add thats why the TA is probably high now, man they are full of it arent they?

    My numbers are
    FC 3
    CC 0
    TC 3
    PH 7.4
    TA 140
    CH 60
    CYA 35
    Temp 86

    The TA is a little high, should I just leave it alone as everything else looks ok, and the pool is clear and will it come down on its own over time?

    Also with having a heater should I get my PH up a little bit more so it wont get ruined or is the PH ok where it is?

    Thanks for a great kit!!!

    It's a little high but I'd only worry about it right now if you see your PH begin to rise....mines high too. I think it's more of an issue in pools that will have constant aeration, like a water slide or spa attached, which will cause the PH to rise.

    I'm sure others will be along, who know better....

    Frustratedpoolmom has it right. Just remember not to allow FC to go below 3.
