Hi all, new TFP member here....thanks to the team at TF Test Kits and a good friend who was visiting the US I have managed to get a nice new TF-100 kit all the way down to New Zealand.
Our new pool is just 4 weeks old and these are the first proper in depth tests I have done. The results are:
Based on what I have read on TFP so far, my understanding is this.....
FC and CC are good.
pH is a little low, although my pool builder has set my SWG to 7.2 as this is where he says it should be?
TA is slightly low and I should add some Bi Carb to get it up to 60-80?
CH is way low as our water is very soft. 50 when I should be looking for around 270. My question is, is this important in a Fibreglass pool? If so I will add Calcium Chloride to get it up?
CYA is low and should be up around 60? I worked out that I should need around 4kg of granular CYA. I added around 2kgs so that I could test it when my kit arrived before I added the rest. However I am reading barely 10?
Salt = 3200ppm which I think is spot on?
Would love to hear the experts opinions.
