I just closed on a house yesterday and tested the water with the taylor 2006. Here's what I got:
FC - 1.0 - 1.2 ?
CC - 1.4 !?
pH - 7.6
TA - 60 - 70
CH - 260 - 270
CYA - < 30 !? Black dot did not disappear
Salt: 5400 !!!
1. Okay I need to drain the pool. Can anyone recommend a pool professional around McKinney, TX to show me the ropes? and who is somewhat compatible with the method in this forum.(Hope I'm not breaking any forum rules)
2. SWG is not running because of the red high salt light. I just added 2 trichlor pucks last night(also to raise CYA). One in a floater and one in the skimmer. Is this OK? Should I shock the pool?
3. I am having issues with the FC and CC titration. I added a couple of drops for FC and the water went clear(0.2 ppm per drop). As I was reading the instructions, a minute later I noticed that the water started turning back to pink(more pink over time) while the taylor speed stir was doing its thing. Similar thing happened with the CC titration. What's going on here? I just realized now that the chlorine may be high(I'll try the test in the booklet). The Taylor Basic test was pretty yellow. I had a hard time matching the yellows- maybe it was 3 or 5 or higher? Any ideas about my issue? Maybe the seller shocked the pool before leaving?
