I just completed my first test with the TF 100 test kit and the results are in. <Drum roll> Pool Temp 85; FC - 1.0; pH -8.2; TA - 100; CH - 90; CYA - 20. My pH is always high. Had some aquarium tested yesterday and the pH read 8.5 which is OK for salt water fish. That's what is coming out of the ground. Not sure why the CYA is so low and I normally use Trichlor 1" tabs. I've been out so I've been using bleach. Is it safe to say I should raise the CYA to 40?
I guess I should have said that this is a new pool and I added 5.5 pounds of CYA at the initial startup of the pool at the beginning of July. I've been feeding my pool muriatic acid to keep the pH down.
