    Finally a real test kit.

    Indeed I did add the reagent, (both times) I should have stated sample but it was so clear I just thought water. To be honest, once the sight tube was completely full the refraction caused the black dot to look tiny, so I wasn't sure if that what was being referred to as "not being able to see...

    If you need a test kit, careful with TF-100 orders. USPS is taking an absurd amount of time.

    Yes, May 1st was the order date,. my mistake, origional post has been fixed to reflect that. Agreed 100% this isn't on you guys. As the tracking showed it left within 1 day. Which is actually quicker than most companies send out stuff. My frustraion is fully on the USPS as the delay is...

    I haven't had this big of an issue with Amazon. I ordered a new weir door on Sunday, and it will be here tomorrow. Maybe it's orders that are crossing the country. From the tracking info it was stuck in Detroit for 7 days.

    Ordered a tf-100 test kit from tftestkits on May 1st. And as you can see it's been in transit for 10 days and not even 1/2 way across the country. If you need a test kit urgently, a Taylor from Amazon might be the better option until the USPS gets things straightened out.

    Muriatic Acid self life?

    I saw the other Muriatic Acid thread and it got me to reading. As a brand new pool owner I had no idea it shouldn't be kept indoors or away from the bleach. I also didn't realize it caused oxidation. I did wonder however why everything in our pump room was rusted. Just figured it was the...

    TF-100 shipping

    A little late to your question. But I ordered the TF-100 on Monday the 1st and still have not received it. Initially it was listed as a 2 day shipment. That's obviously very very off right now. Tracking as of the 8th it's simply listed as "in transit to next facility" (took 3 days to go...

    Yet another new pool owner thread. (Apologies)

    Hey Mknauss, looks like I'm off to a rough start on this forum. I misread the label on the filter. I found a better model # label and fixed my signature accordingly. Sorry for the confusion.

    Yet another new pool owner thread. (Apologies)

    Hello Mknauss fellow Nevadan! I updated my signature, with what I could possibly think of. Unfortunately my pool system seems rather simplistic. (Especially when I look at some of the systems on here) I'll add a gallon of 10% tonight.

    Yet another new pool owner thread. (Apologies)

    Hello TFP. So, I recently found this great site. Unfortunately I found it after having my pool opened by a local company. I also had ordered a $20 test kit from Amazon. Luckily I was able to cancel the order and have since ordered the TF100, which should arrive next week sometime. I...
