    Smile Just ordered my TF 100

    I am excited to get this. I usually just take my pool water into Leslies Pool Supply for testing, but I decided this year, I will try it on my own.

    Re: Just ordered my TF 100

    Everyone has been so helpful here and I read so many threads that were helpful here. There is a plethora of information! Although my husband thinks I am nuts for wanting to upgrade our inlet and return since I have to cut larger holes. I showed him the thread with pictures and he shook his head and said don't slip or you will have a very unhappy child..lol

    Great choice to do it on your own and stay further away from the pool store.

    I just packaged it up and the UPS guy should pick it up this afternoon! Good timing as we are ending free shipping on purchases of $80 or more this Wednesday, April 15. Have fun testing your water!

    Arrow Pool is blue, but. cloudy.

    I am waiting for my TF 100 kit to arrive. Looks like it will be here Friday, but I am hoping for Thursday.

    In the meantime, I have done lots of reading on here. I do not have current readings for my water, but when I went to Leslies on Friday all of my readings were good and within the normal ranges per them.

    My pool water is blue, but cloudy. I have been leaving the filter on at least 10 hours a day. I try to leave it on longer, but hubby turns it off so he can sit on the patio without all of the noise and forgets to turn it back on. I have the SWG running 6 hours a day. I have been adding about 22 ops of liquid chlorine 8.25% the past 2 days just to make sure my FC stays up.

    Readings on Friday from Leslies pools: please note that they have the water volume at 5289 because they did not compensate for the water level. Just based it off of the size. Correct gallons is 4600.

    FC:2
    Total Chl: 2
    Salt: 2900
    CH: 200
    CYA: 70
    TA: 80
    PH: 7.4
    Copper: 0
    Iron: 0
    Phos: 0
    Like I said they did not have the correct gallons. So the numbers may be a tic higher.

    Re: Pool is blue, but. cloudy.

    You could post the numbers the store got when they tested the water. Saying "were good" doesn't tell us anything at all, as some pools stores have some crazy notions of what is "good". Without some information it is impossible to suggest anything.

    The number of gallons does not affect any of the test results ... that would only impact the amount of what they try to sell you.
