I'm new to the site, and had to cut back on costs, so the pool guy was the first to go. So now I'm chief pool and spa guy on site every day. Woooohoooo!
Leslies told me to dump the water because of the dissolved solids etc. So here is their summary
FAC OK 4
CYA HIGH 130
TA HIGH 130
pH OK 7.5
TDS HIGH 5000
TEMPERATURE OK 70
I'm using a cheap HDeopt test kit, and it seems to be doing fine for the chlorine and pH. But I'm guessing that I have to upgrade.
Pool history is that I get algie on sides of pool (green) but the water looks clear. Chlorine (pills) and liquid, I use now seems to be ok. And I use muratic acid to bring the pH down, and it seems like I use a lot of it. 1/2 gal week?
Thanks for looking. Oh and no questions yet except that .....should I dump the water now before California puts a squeeze on the water supply?
