    Phosphates tested at 2500 ppb

    I am so thrilled to have found this forum...New pool owner of 3 months and my confidence is growing daily. I'm testing like a champion with a good kit and my numbers are all exactly where they should be. (Patting my own back as I type. BUT, two weeks ago, I took a water sample to Lesley's and my phosphates tested at 2500 ppb. They sold me a $80 bottle of liquid that our filter pressure detested. We cleaned the filter (cartridge) and were back in business. Fast forward to today: I wanted to see if Lesley's test numbers matched mine. They did, but again - Phosphate fear! 400 ppb. This time I refused the PhosFree and left with my $80 intact! Thanks to YOU, fine people!

    But you save the 2nd $80, reward your knowledge, spend $20 on your self. Maybe a favorite beer or wine.

    Welcome to the forum Allisonwalla

    Before you "save" that money do you have a good test kit ?? You said you wanted to see if the stores numbers matched yours, do you have a TF100 or K2006 ?? AND .. always trust you own numbers or even test again to confirm before you go to a pool store and get really confused
