OK so i'm new to pool ownership. Just had my new pool about 3 weeks
30' round above ground approx avg dept 4.5' so around 23800-24000 gallons.
Just picked up my TF100 test kit and ran all the tests since i previously only had the quick chlorine and pH dropper test that came with pool. Found it very difficult to read the colours on it.
It is SWG pool with Aquatrol system.
Here are my readings
CYA ??? I filled tube up to the max before i could not see black dot
pH 7.5?? How can you more accuratlly measure this since sometimes it is difficult to distinguish the colours or tell which it is closer to?
I too a sample to pool store last week they said everything was ok but I needed to add baking soda and Calcium to bring up TA and Calcium. It now appears TA is a bit too high??
Chlorine just yesterday was farly bright yellow on the cheap tester kit that came with the pool after I had run aqua trol on superchlorinate for 24 hrs since it appeared prior the chlorine was a bit low. Yesterday had about 8 people over for a swim and we were in and out of the pool for the afternoon.
Now Chlorine is a bit low?? is that normal? was not extremly hot or sunny day. have aquatrol set at 50% and am running pump usually on high from about 9am till 5pm (for solar Heat) then longer off solar heat for maybe another 4 hours.
