I am about to do the AA test for what I believe are metals stains (Tested with Vitamin c tablet and staining went away).
I wanted a good baseline so i bought a taylor k-2006 kit. I performed all the tests but couldnt get the Calcium hardness test right, it was always purple, not blue and I felt like i was wasting regent.
In a 15-16k saltwater pool
TA: 80 ppm
CYA: < 30 super low could see the dot even with the whole vial filled so its less than 30
CH: inconclusive was always purple tried the test twice following the fading end point directions couldnt get it to work
1) So what should I do to get back in balance?
2) What should I do to bring my FC to 0 so i can do the Ascorbic Acid (AA) test?
