    First Pool - Many Questions

    Are you wiping the tip of the dropper with a damp cloth in between drops with the TA test? Static in the bottle can cause the drops to be smaller than they should be and skew the result upward. I ask because the TA seems awfully high for the pH result.

    First Pool - Many Questions

    Post salt chemicals off

    Or if you’re weird like me and like to use up your reagents just so they run out evenly, you test it every time you test the pH, because hey, the comparator block is full of water and the reagent is right there in the box. 😂

    What is this buildup in my cartridge filter housing?

    Chlorine usage high. Again

    Just for S&G I went in and changed my sanitizer source to a SWG. It still tells me I need 2 quarts, 3oz to add 4 ppm to my 13000 gallon pool.
