Used Leslie's Test Kit 81-330...then raced to get some chemicals, and they tested my water too. Results were similar, but I think mine are more accurate because the guy running the chemicals was sloppy and I was precise! But here they are:
FAC 3 (store said 5)
TAC 3 (store said 5)
PH needed 7 drops, so I am adding 1.5 gallons over the next two days. (Store added 5 drops)
TA 190 (Leslie store said 140)
CYA 33 (store said 30)
CH 525 (store said 440)...we both used 44 drops, my kit said multiply by 25, he said as a general rule you multiply by 10
Salt 2500 (going to add salt tomorrow to bring it up to over 3000). Should I wait to add until my PH is good?
Phosphates 150 (from Leslie's)...
I added 1 gallon of liquid stabilizer. It pears I needed 3 gallons, as that one gallon will only raise my CYA by 10 and I need at minimum 50 (from Pentair manual) and 60 according to Pool School.
But the huge issue at hand is the enormous amount of white flakes. While cleaning my tile, I was able to notice that where I thought my plaster was lightening, there were streaks of darker plaster (I have gray plaster) and that the lighter parts were elevated so it makes me think my whole plaster is covered in scale!
