    Just got the TF-100.

    Hey I just received my kit and here are the results.

    Cc 1.5
    Cya 55
    Ta 70
    Ch 75
    Ph 7.5

    So the pool is crystal clear. Last week I had the pool store test it for the last time. The guy said that I have partials blah blah blah your pool is going to turn green a d have algae. What do yall think. I'm worried about the cc.

    Thanks

    Welcome to TFP!

    Because your CC is 1.5, I would SLAM the pool. When SLAMming, I would turn off the SWG and use bleach as the only source of chlorine during the SLAM. After the SLAM is done, I would raise CYA to 70, check the recommended salt level for your SWG, turn the SWG back on, and begin targeting an ongoing maintenance FC target of 5 ppm.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    Curious about the change in FC and CC readings. Did you do something different 2nd time around? Trying to piece it all together.

    I don't think I did anything differnt. It was my first time. The SWG ran for 2 additional hours between test. Will retest tomorrow and see what happens.
