Evening all, Greetings from AZ.
I'm currently working on learning all there is to know about this pool/chemistry/evil pool store people, etc... I have played around with my TF-100 test kit and think I'm getting the hang of it.
My current readings:
I had noted my PH was high and used Pool Math to find out how much Muriatic acid to add. Retested, still too high, so I've added same amount and will have to retest tomorrow morning, first thing. I have also noted that my FC is high for the CYA but there was some CC (Barely turned a slight pink so had to factor in that 1 drop for the test) so I assume it's trying to kill something in there...
Also, I have been playing with the CH test and have noted how hard my water is... I recently had my pool acid washed (completely replaced old water with new, obviously) so I'm not entirely sure what else I can except manage it best I can with this awesome water in my neighborhood.
This is currently what my pool looks like. It's clear and I brush/net every day. P.S. The floater is just for looks, my realtor bought it for me and I thought it was cute, it's completely empty, I promise.
ANYhoo, Let me know what I'm doing wrong/right, I've got tough skin.
