Recently i purchased a home that has a pool! I'm finally starting to look at it after a couple months of owning the property. About 2 months ago i took my water to a shop to get tested and today I performed a test using the taylor-k2006 test kit.
Here's the results:
poolshop, 2 months ago:
Calcium Hardness = 626
Taylor k-2006 test kit:
Couldn't measure chlorine
ph > 8.0
TA = 220ppm
Calcium Hardness = 700-800ppm
Cynuric Acid = > 100 (the test wouldn't measure anything greater than 100)
Given these test results, does this pretty much mean i need to drain and replace all the pool water?
If so.. I was thinking about switching to a salt water generator. Would this be the ideal time to do it?
Also, i noticed in the pump setup there is an ionizer ( i think that's what it's called ). Even with that, is it worth switching to salt water?
Thanks a lot!
