    Taylor Testing Question

    I have a Taylor K-2006 Test kit That I have been using the past two seasons.

    The only tests I have used my kit for are FC, CC, pH and CYA.

    My most recent numbers are:

    FC: 6
    CC: 0
    pH: 7.3
    CYA: 40

    Water is like glass. Absolutely crystal clear.

    My pH never fluctuates (I test the pH about once a week) and the only thing I ever do is add bleach on a daily basis after testing. I test chlorine daily. I use 6.0% Clorox bleach for chlorine.

    Is there really any need to use any of the other tests in the kit for any reason?

    It is recommended you run all test once a week. Your TA can be an important one.

    It's not a bad thing to have a base line on other things like TA and CH. Sounds like things are stable, but I would get those numbers down for reference. Just keep the pH and Free Chlorine in line if those others are as ok as it sounds.

    I run TA once a week, but I don't run CH. With a vinyl pool you won't need to worry much about that either.

    I agree with Lisa. I would check the TA every few weeks, although given that your pH is stable, there is not really a need to change it.

    I would also check the CH just so you know where you are at. Even in a vinyl pool you could develop problems if it was too high. Although given your shorter season and likely partial draining for winter, this is not likely a problem.
