    Help with TF-100 test results- please!

    Hi- Ran my first test with the TF-100 kit and I think the pool is looking good but wanted to get some expert opinions. We went from disgusting brown water to clear and sparkly in 2 weeks with bleach and running the filter 24/7. Its a 12,000 gallon 18 x 24 above ground pool with a cartridge filter.

    FC= 15.5
    CC= 1
    TC= 16.5
    CH= 250
    TA= 100
    CYA= 60
    PH= 7.2

    I know the chlorine is high but I assume it will go down as we are no longer adding 2 gallons of bleach a day. Is there anything else that looks off? I am attaching a pic of the progression over 2 weeks as well.

    Thanks!

    Welcome amye!


    Overall that looks pretty good and you seem to have a good grasp. Cya is a little high for a non salt pool. Have you passed the OCLT? If you haven't done that, be sure to check the link below. With a CC of 1.0 you still may have something going on in there that still needs elevated FC to eliminate.
