tested water last night with a wal-mart 6 way test
TC = 6
PH =7.5 or 7.7
TA = 60 ppm
total hardness = 15
CYA = 0
when I did TC test ... test water was darker than indicator window (top indicator window is 5.)
when I did CYA test black dot on bottom never went away with tube filled to rim (above top mark) so I am assuming it is zero.
never put stabilizer in pool due pool being installed late august 2013.
Opened pool with 2# of shock. Should I add algaecide ?
