FC- 53 !!! (no, not 5.3)
Water Temp- 65
Could this really be the chlorine level? I measured it with the TF-100 by carefully following the drop method. The included Taylor K-1000 shows readings off the Cl chart with only 1 drop of R-0600 instead of the prescribed 5. My Taylor K-1001, which uses the two chemical reagent method, also shows colors off the Cl chart.
We have a pool guy because I'm a newbie learning this stuff but if the pool is really at 11 times where it should be on chlorine he's not going to have a job much longer. We haven't used the pool this winter and it's very well shaded with adequate stabilizer so maybe it has just been accumulating chlorine every week during servicing for the last 4+ months. The SWCG has been inoperative since we moved into the home last year. It's certainly clear, algae free, and blue!
