    TF-100 testing questions

    I have just ordered my TF-100 and looking forward to it very much

    questions
    1: What levels should all my chemicals be at, please provide a 'table'
    2: does the TF-100 have a tutorial booklit? looks a little confusing, the color coding this is hard because you really cant tell the level all that well
    3: how often should i test everything?

    You should read the pool school information, getting the test kit is a good move...

    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!

    I agree, I just got mine a couple of weeks ago and it's very easy. I got the SpeedStir which makes things that much easier. Plus i feel like a Mad scientist doing the testing

    Speedstir! HA! All I did last year was listen to you people brag about the speedstir. SPEEDSTIR THIS and SPEEDSTIR THAT. Are you too lazy to swirl????? Then..... ahem... I bought one. And hung my head in shame. I had condemned all of you, yet now I have become one of you. Now I tell my friends "Ya gotta getta speedstir!!" They say "Are you too lazy to swirl"?
