    Test Results

    Pool has been up and running 1 week. SWCG set at 50%. Added since opening 1 gallon of MA, (ph was 8.2) 8# of CYA, 3# of calcium hypochlorite shock & about 50 oz. of bleach over the course of one week.

    Numbers as of today using Waterlink Datamate?? and cross checked with Taylor kit:

    FC 3.3
    TC. 4.21
    CC 0.91
    PH 7.8
    Hardness 44
    ALK 130
    CYA 38
    Salt 3000 (SWG says 3100-3200)

    I will take a sample to another store tomorrow for another opinion and order a test kit as well. Water is clear. I can see drains in 6 feet, but I feel like it could be a bit better.

    We have had tons of rain the past week, in fact I have only been on the pool once. I had to pump to waste about an inch today.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Pool store said all was well and just let the SWG do it's thing.

    Re: Test Results

    Welcome to TFP!

    Other than pH I would leave it be until you get your good test kit in.

    pH I would bring down to 7.5, the SWG is going to continuously drive it up, depending on the pool you will probably be adding MA once a week or so.

    Post back here once you get your kit, I'm curious as to what the CCs really are.
