Finally received my K-2006 test kit. The first test reasults are:
FC: 2.5 ppm
TA: 200 ppm
CH: 950 ppm
CYA: not sure about 1/3 of the way from the bottom of the tube to the 100 ppm mark (I was careful with judging the black dot, and repeated the reading)
So my understanding is that the only solution is drain and refil. The area in which I live has a "pool can be filled once every 5 years" limit, and having just moved into the house, I don't know when it was last refilled.
1) What should I do maintain the pool until I can either refill or have RO treatment?
2) When should I do the refill if I can do so?
3) If I can't refill, I will see if the RO people in San Diego will come up here. If I need to take this option, when is the best time to do this?
4) Any alternative solutions?
