I'm new to the forum and to testing with anything other than a strip. I bought the TF-100 test kit and did all of the appropriate tests and all I have left to conquer is cloudy water and calcium hardness.
Question: The instructions for this test were a little vague. I put the appropriate # of drops in but when I got to the last one R-0012, I didn't know where to stop. It turned blue after 5 drops and didn't seem to register any change, but that level seems way too low. I kept going up to 25 drops without any color change. It's just blue. Does 50 sound too low (Long Island, New York water)
The cloudy water, I'm assuming, is a result of the algaecide I put in to kill the algae (pool cover cable snapped allowing for debris to enter pool). I've been shocking and have used a clarifier twice. Should I just keep shocking until cloudiness clears? Should I use clarifier again.
