    Reading test vial results

    I learned something by accident. Ever notice how hard it is to compare your test result colors to the colors on the test kits because of bad lighting or a dark background? Try this: hold the test vials in front of a computer monitor that is showing a white background (like an Excel spreadsheet). Works great!
    My pool is a 10,500 gallon (420 Sq Ft ) kidney shape. A hand made sheer decent waterfeature. STA-RITE HRPB30, Sand filter 30" 98 GPM,
    1 HP Maxi-Glas 2 pump, BBB Method, Taylor K-2005 test kit, 50 Watt 12V low-voltage pond light illuminates the pool at night for a nice soft glow.
    250 gallon stand-alone hot tub. Got it FREE!
