Test TFtest kit arrived, except for the red-capped testing bottle, so I don't have all the numbers. My replacement Tcell also arrived and I have it installed - seems to be running fine, as the the indicator lights on the box state that it is generating and there has been an increase in the display number on the box.
Here are the numbers I do have...
FC - 2
Alkaline - 120
Ph - 7.8 (this is a morning sample - might this number be different in the evening?
water is clear but not sparkly
Readout on SWG is currently at 2900 - an increase of 100 since yesterday - however, despite thoroughly sweeping the walls and floor yesterday, there is a return of algae (what I believe to be so) on the bottom of the pool.
I know the chlorine is low, will getting the number up kill off the algae? I do have bleach on hand yet, can I safely add this even though the SWG is operating?
Thanks! I appreciate any/all advice.
Edit: Found test bottle. CYA - didn't even register. Followed directions and was still able to see dot with cylinder completely full.
