I've been using the TFPC method since we got out pool 5 years ago. No algae, no problems, everything is good.
been having a slight problem thees past few months. My water is not as clear as it typically is. Generally I can see very clearly a coin on the bottom of the 6' deep end. While I can still see a coin, there is a slight haze to the water that I just cannot get rid of.
Here are my readings from yesterday (TF-100)...
Salt: about 3500 (this is the one test I had done at the pool store)
I did have a slightly functioning salt cell which I recognized very early on and augmented with 8.25% bleach until this weekend when my new cell was installed. New cell is working fine and verified by testing a few hours after installation with a TF-100 test.
Aside from that, everything seems well and good except for the "polish" that I am accustomed to.
Might I be a candidate for clairifier? I have never added anything to the pool aside from the TFPC ingredients, so adding something our of my norm has me questioning.
