    total chlorine sky rocking!!!

    I thought the TC was relevant, since it is listed on the TF-100 test kit. Why list some we don't need? I did go 9 days, in the illusional hope that the chlorine will just disappears...not happened! And I am slamming the pool since 7-3-21. It's getting better, I think. Today's values are: FC 17...

    total chlorine sky rocking!!!

    I have a digital TDS & E professional meter to test the salt. And for the CYA, it stopped between 50 and 60, so I came up with 55. Should I round up or down?

    total chlorine sky rocking!!!

    I am at my wits end. my chlorine is out of control, searching the web, I came to the conclusion, that I have a chlorine lock.

    Re: we have a situation....TC..0, FC..0,CYA..0, PH..<6.8, TA Thanks for your answer, but I can't turn my SWG off unless I turn the filter off. The pool dude connected the SWG to the timer of my filter, the SWG automatically runs when the filter runs. Is that a problem? Astrid

    Re: we have a situation....TC..0, FC..0,CYA..0, PH..<6.8, TA ...no powder or pucks....! But the pool dude who installed the SWG just dumped 4bags of salt in the existing, chlorinated water. Does that have some to do with it? He didn't checked my chemicals before nor after installation.
