First attempt, followed directions as best I could, sure I will get better at it.
CH above 550. Stopped at 55 drops before I drained the bottle. Hard water here in Tucson, but is this a plausible result? I assume answer is to drain water.
TA 130 above the acceptable range of 100-120
PH 7.7 I dump muriatic acid in, need to use more I assume to decrease PH and reduce TA. I also have some dry acid. Is one more effective than the other to reduce TA?
so TC is 11.5 Had a pump go down a couple of weeks ago and did a trichlor shock and increased hockey puck use for the week I was without a pump.
The basic CL test was deep yellow so I guess it backs up these results on TC.
Can FC be so high when using pucks? I thought it would be low.
And I can't remember what 0 CC tells me or if it is good or bad, will search the forum
Could not do CYA test but I bet it is high. Unusual, but no bright sun in Tucson today.
When I do CYA test I will start the liquid bleach routine but don't these preliminary results indicate I need to drain water and then adjust PH and TA?
Other comments from the water doctors on here? I am a little shamed by my results but you have to tell your doctor the truth, right?
I have never had algae in 5 years of owning this house and pool, knew Calcium was high but not this high. Minor scaling on the tile that we use pumice stone on about once a year. Water was clear but I guess it doesn't sparkle like people talk about here at TFP.
