    First test with TF-100 test kit

    OK, my test kid came yesterday, I did my first test this morning My results were
    FC 3.5
    CC .5
    TA 100
    CH 250
    CYA 40
    Ph 7.8

    I added 35 oz of CYA in a sock near the return, and bumped up my SWG from 35% to 45%. I know that I'm only guessing on the percentage to go up on the SWG but the the pool calculator only calls for 13 Oz of 6% bleach. and I need to know how much the different percentages will change the FC level. I'm hoping I'm on the right track, If anyone sees a problem please let me know.

    Setting the percentage on the swg is a bit of a guessing game to begin with. You just set it somewhere and wait a day and test to see how close to the target you are and then adjust it again. Soon you will get it dialed in.
