    water water everywhere and nowhere to swim

    Hi all

    Bad news
    Just had my water tested
    chlorine 7.4
    Ph 7.2
    Cya over 999

    I was told to completely empty mu pool and ballast tank and refill
    Or over chlorinate the pool for the last two months and live with it.
    Any suggestions

    I thought I saw the light at the end of the tunnel but it was just some PERSON with a torch walking toward me.
    I started out in life with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    As he said, just because it came out of a digital tester, does not mean it is right. Much like if your car's onboard Distance to Empty read out said you had a range of 94859 miles on the current tank, just because it was digital does not mean it is right. I would seek confirmation of the level through a liquid turbidity test done under correct lighting conditions.

    Here is a message thread from today that shows why we don't trust digital testers colorq-pro-7-debate-and-results-t65965.html
