For your entertainment...
It's overcast, some rain, and had our July 4th party yesterday so, what to do... let's go to the pool store and get that new float for the Polaris. Oh look, they offer $5 off if you get their "free" water test...
1 lb 11oz dry acid or 20 oz muriatic acid
30 lbs Hardness Plus
23 oz PHOSfree
Yesterday we had as many as 7 adults and 2 kids (ages 2 and 4) in the pool for 5 hours. Boosted the FC night before and right after party.
My TF-100 tests:
on eve of 7/2: 4.5 (this is normal), boosted to 7
morning of party, 7/3: 7
after party: 4.5, boosted to 7
this morning: 7
pH: 7.8 (before party was 7.5, I'll add acid today or tomorrow)
So, I think I'll pass on the pool store recommendations, haha and just put on the new float that cost $2 after the coupon.
Oh, and of course a pic just taken... like I said, it's overcast so I couldn't capture the usual TFP sparkle right now:
