    Pool Store test results different from mine ....

    I had to get some sand and thought I would have them check the water. They show my CYA @ 68 and I get 50, they show my CC @ 3.64 and I get .75 - 1. Not sure if the difference is in their testing or mine, but I will keep up and SLAM as I am getting good results with the TFP method!

    It's overwhelmingly more common that pool store results don't match home tests than that they do, and it's even common that pool store results don't match each other or themselves. Thread

    However, since I see a pool frog chlorinator listed in your equipment, I'd be suspicious of both readings. I'd expect to see CYA much higher.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    If you're using the TF100 or K2006 you need to trust your test results.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    I have stopped feeding the frog, with the TFP method, I will keep slamming and watch as the water clears hourly!!!
