Hi everyone, I have been trying to find either a Taylor K-2006 or a TF-100 test kit where I live in Guatemala, all the pool companies seem to get their reagent kits through the same supplier in Guatemala, and they can only offer the Pentair Rainbow (ph and chlorine) Taylor K-2005 (with no FAS-dpd)
When the pool was opened by the contracted building company we were told that we would need to throw 1/2 cup of Trichlor in each day at sunset amd we would never have a problem, and that the majority of people that have problems have stopped using Trichlor and have started using bleach, pffft. After a month of this Trichlor, running the pump 24/7 brushing one day and vacuuming the next I noticed green algae near the entrance steps and a tinge to the water that is not getting better.
I have found bleach from our detergant supplier which is 10.5% which is a sight better that the normal 5.25% bleach which is the absolute best you can find in the supermarket, and at $1.60 a gallon it seems like good value. But, I have no way of pulling off the TFP method without being able to do the CYA and FAS-DBD tests, I can get a K-2005 kit but still can't SLAM the pool until I can find the right reagents, as far as I can understand.
I guess I am looking for any suggestions as to how you would go about this, I could buy they majority of the tests, the results of which you all need to give me a hand, but without the FAS-DPD I am stuck no? Any advice would be appreciated.
