I have just received my Taylor kit a few days ago and ran some tests. Now I did the test at night so I only had artificial colour, which may explain why some of the results looked a bit off to me (TA and CH), I will repeat the test again when there's still daylight but for now this is what I have:
What interests me most is the FC being too high, should be half of that based on everything I've read so far. Also I understand that the TA and CH results look wrong because of the high FC value.Code:CYA 70 FC 8 CC 0.5 TA 80 (this looked more pinkish red) CH 230 (this looked more purplish) ph 7.4 - 7.6
My SWG is running at 75% for 8 hours, and based on the specs of my SWG (thanks aussieta) at maximum capacity it can generate 18gr an hour, so at 75% it generates 108 grams of chlorine a day. Obviously I can just lower the SWG settings or reduce pump run time, but before I do that I was wondering if there is any way to back calculate the expected FC based on my SWG settings, just so I can get some validity in the results?
