Test Results! Test Results! Test Results!
FC - Free Chlorine: 5.0
CC - Combined Chlorine: 0
pH - 7.2
TA - Total Alkalinity: 150
CH - Calcium Hardness: 2,250
CYA - Cyanuric Acid (stabilizer): >100
Borates - (if you are using borates): NA
WATER CLEAR, BUT NOT CRYSTAL FOR MANY MONTHS
CONTINUOUSLY AERATING TO LOWER TA SINCE 4/16/14
Previous pool service stated in January 2013 that the water had not been drained or refilled since at least 2008.
A local pool store stated that the pool should be totally drained/refilled (yeah, I know ---- they sell chemicals!) after I submitted test samples in March 2013 --- probably because of the high CH and CYA levels????
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
