    Got my Taylor 2006-C first test

    So it came in the mail today, after a little ready I pulled a sample and tested. Here are my numbers with a learning curve I'm sure

    FC 0.0
    pH 8.0
    TA 170
    CH 470
    CYA 30

    To start slamming pool math says 342 oz of 15% bleach to get to 24 FC
    Get pH down 7.3 I need 32 oz of acid

    Re: Got my Taylor 2600-c first test

    Would you like to take care of that high CH first with a drain/refill or would you prefer to wait? I'll let you decide but you should, consider bringing it down. You're running a high pH and with a high CH, you could start seeing scale on your liner and booger it up.

    Other than that, you're ready to SLAM the pool once you get the pH down.

    Any way to figure how much water needs to be removed to bring number down?

    Well, I would start by draining the pool and leaving 1ft of water in the shallow end as to not displace the liner and refill, circulate the water and retest. If you can get the CH to around 200, you should be good. I would imagine you were using Cal-Hypo as your source of FC.

    I'm using 5 gallon of pool shock that is 15%.

    I figured it was from previous visits to the pool store and what they were selling you.

    You can try to harvest rain water. I know other members do that because of it. I believe that's you're only option.

    Can you run a CH test on the fill water and post the results? If it's high, there may be no sense in doing a water replacement.

    Yea I can, do I just do a test on from the spigot, or do I mix them?

    Ok thanks, I'll check that out tomorrow. I was hoping my kit would come in earlier today so I could start slamming that way I had all day to fight it, but no luck. Busy tomorrow so I'll have to hit it Monday.

    If you are positive you have high CH in your fill, I would start the SLAM. A water replacement would be a waste. I was just curious as to what it really is.

    I'm pretty sure we do, when I wash my cars there are huge spots all over the cars, and the water eats hot water heaters about every 3 years. Luckily for me they have 6 year warranty.

    I don't remember your numbers from the previous thread. Has your FC always been that low, or is that just a recent condition?

    I was running around 7.3, I'm hoping I did the FC/CC test correctly.

    Re: Got my Taylor 2600-c first test

    I tested my tap water this afternoon, it's higher than my pool, it is at 300. So I guess the drain and fill won't do much good?

    If you're following the very simple instructions for the fas-dpd FC test, there really isn't too much that can go wrong with the results. Btw, a SpeedStir is an invaluable tool for performing your tests. I suggest if you didn't order one, you might consider it.

    If the CH of your tap water is higher than your pool, then a drain and refill would increase your CH.

    Member living in areas with high tap water CH usually harvest rain water in order to help keep the CH in check.

    What time of day is best to start the slamming process?

    Best to start when you can dedicate a few hours because bleach may disappear quickly during the start.
    It is advisable to SLAM at night so that there is no chlorine loss to sun.

    I did my test again on FC, when I put the powder in the water doesn't turn pink so I'm guessing I have no FC


    Sent from my dumb apple products my work makes me use.
    Also do I need to do the acid demand test or the base demand test?
