OK. I bought the super duper test kit but I have yet to master its use. I travel A LOT and when I get home I typically hoist several and just jump in the deep end. Please excuse my lazy deportment.
My T Cell failed, so I bought a rebuilt unit (T-15) from Salt Solutions in FL (If I remember their name correctly). I added a half a bag of salt and let it rip.
Yesterday on a whim I took some water to The Big L and this is what came back.
Calcium Hardness 150
They suggested 4 LB of Alkalinity UP and 15 pounds of Hardness Plus. Nothing more.
1. What are my best and least expensive options for the two chems they suggest? I thought Alkaline was the 7-14 ph range and things were OK. Am I smoking Ganja?
2. What do I do, if anything, about the Phosphate level? I seem to recall that it can just be ignored.
The pool is crystal clear and the beer is ice cold. The tequila and lime are also wonderful, as are the Gin n Tonics. Squeezie is wearing a very very small, chartreuse skimpy and Sinatra is crooning in the background. Life is very, very good.
