Just got my new liner in and will reach operating level soon. 13 years on the old line with no leaks or stains! It was wrinkled a bit, and my CYA was very high (first 10 years on pucks - never again), it was just time.
Now the mystery. I have totally new city water straight from the hose. Just did a quick strip check, and to my surprise there seems to be Bromine present.
Bromine: 5+ PPM
Do you guys think I really have bromine? I know these are cheap test strips (I have the TFP kit as well), but I know the old water registered 0 bromine. Drinking water sanitized with Bromine? So I filled a glass of water our of the kitchen faucet... same numbers as above! Must be the strips or some reaction with the city water?
I will get some better strips. And will use my Taylor drops when I get home. Just wondering if anyone else has head to Bromine being present with a new fill.
