I love what I am seeing here, so I'm in! While waiting for my TF-100 to arrive, I had my local pool store (yes, sorry) test my water and my CYA was 160 (curse you trichlor tabs). So I spent the week draining and refilling. I dumped in three 121oz bottles of Clorox to ward off the algae (none visible) while I get set up (I sure hope that was okay to do).
I ran my first (shaky at best - all results are suspect) TF-100 test battery this morning. The fresh new water looks very nice.
Water temp 69 degrees
I am unclear whether to add even more bleach for an initial SLAM after draining & refilling so much. After this test I added 48 oz muriatic acid to rein in the pH.
I am concerned about the CH and CSI, but I will wait until I get some guidance from you.
When everything is in order, I have Borax and MA standing by for the big day.
Thanks for holding my hand while I learn these new skills. - David
