This is my first post. I've been trying to understand pool maintenance for a few weeks ever since getting a house that has an in-ground pool. I ended up getting the Taylor k-2006 test kit since it seemed to be used here on the forums. I'm already stuck on the first test and need a hand!
I went through the chlorine test.
1. Fill tube to 10ml mark (also tried 25ml)
2. Add 1-2 scoops of R-0870 and the water turns a deep pink
3. Add R-0871 in drops (and swirl it) until color changes to colorless. Here i'm stuck.
It remains pink until about 15-20 drops at which point it starts becoming a mirky white. I was under the impression it should go back to clear. Am I doing something wrong?
Also, i haven't even touched the pool for 2 months (weather has been fairly cold in texas and I've had other more pressing repairs). Now i'm trying to figure this thing out. I did manage to proceed to ph and it seems to be at 7.8, but the chlorine test .... no clue. Any idea?
