so i have had my pool up for about 10 days, I filled it with tap water over two days. i have been just guessing on the chlorine, putting about 60-80oz of bleach in a day. My K-2006 kit just came and I tested it this morning. Here is what I did and the results I got, please let me know what I did wrong or what I should do next.
First test was the chlorine, i filled the large tube up to 25mL. Added 2 dippers of R-0870 and swirled to mix. I only needed two drops of R-0871 to clear up the sample so that means it is .4ppm of free correct?
Then I added 5 drops of R-0003 and swirled. It took two drops of R-0871 to clear that, so that is also .4ppm of combined chlorine.
I know those are really low.
PH, it was at or just below 7.0, it took two drops of R-0006 to get it to 7.4, but after a 20 seconds or so it appeared to lighten up and almost get back to 7.0.
my CYA was were I was really baffled, but i guess i may not have any CYA in my pool because of filling it with tap water??? I filled the bottle up to the 7mL mark, then added R-0013 to 14mL mark, the solution never turned cloudy, it was as clear as can be.
Alkalinity was 50
Calcium was 80
What should i do? Thank you so much for any help.
