    Welcome to TFP!!

    What Taylor kit are you using? A TC reading of 3.3 is not possible with the kits we recommend. CYA of 15 is below the minimum of the test. And phosphates are not tested for (because they do not matter).

    You need to follow the SLAM Process until you pass the 3 criteria to stop.

    Keep SLAM'ing and read Pool School. You just can't read it enough!

    I own the taylor one recommended here but to clarify those are reading from my pool store test.
