    Test Kit check, now what?

    I just received my new test kit, it is a Taylor K-2006 FAS/DPD

    just checked chemical levels, wanting now to go to TFPC here are the results I got with the FAS/DPD kit

    PH - 7.4
    CH - 110 - I think, wasn't to sure on this one
    TA - 90
    CYA - 30
    FC - .4
    CC - .2

    On the Ch test wasn't really sure I was doing that one right. Yep don't think the FC & CC are correct, never did get the water to turn pink in the tester.

    How exciting!!



    The CH test should be straightforward. When it turns sky blue - almost the shade of the background on this page - and doesn't change anymore when you add another drop, you're done. You can watch videos of each test here: http://www.youtube.com/user/TF100TestKit

    How does your water look? If it's clear, raise FC up to 5 with bleach or some of your leftover Cal-hypo and go swimming!

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
