    For sale TF100 refill kit

    Hi, I have a new, never opened TF100 refill kit for sale. We recently sold our house and moved to one without a pool. I bought this refill kit around December 2020 and it has always been stored in our kitchen cabinet. During the move I kept it with me instead of the moving truck. Therefore It...

    How Clear is TFP Clear? Let's See (Pics Please).

    After one year of using TFP method the water is still crystal clear and I had no issues with the pool what so ever. Sadly, we are moving out of this house soon and the new house has no pool :(

    Draining Pool TDS

    Stop worrying about freezing. A body of water doesn't go solid simply because temperature has reached a freezing point.

    Draining Pool TDS

    I don't understand why you are draining. Temps going to the freezing point or even slightly below for few hours during the night, will not freeze water in the pipes, pump or filter.

    Wanting as low a FC as possible for SWG pool.

    Do not be afraid of chlorine, it is pretty much the most effective sanitation option out there and is it also cost effective. I've been maintaining my FC levels between 6 and 8 ppm, because my CYA is at 50ppm. No chlorine smell, no itchy eyes or skin, even on my children. As long as the FC...

    TFTestKits has refills on sale thru Nov 1

    R-0870 and R-0871 alone run for about & $20 on Amazon, add R-0013 and we're in the $30s. At this point the refill kit looks like a really good value IMO.

    Love that turtle pic taken at a weird angle. At first glance it does look like turtles swimming in your pool. Nice camera work (y)

    Different FC results - “R-0870 w/ R-0871” vs. “Taylor K-1000 w/ R-0014”

    The OTO test, for TFP maintained FC levels, is pretty much only good for indicating if there is chlorine in the water. I let my kids use it as they like the color change. FAS-DPD is the test you want to use.

    Minor Alge "cloud" when brushing

    I would probably still bring FC to SLAM level for a day or two and then maintain FC between 6 and 8ppm. 4ppm for CYA of 50 is the bare minimum and your pool should not see this level too often.

    Pool company can't get the water right in our new pool and wants to take out the glass media and put sand in possibly.

    This is a sad situation to be in for sure with a brand new pool. And pool builders are just that. Read up on the filter media, if sand is better get your PB to change it. Beyond that, I think you're better off taking the matters into your own hands and following TFP's SLAM Process. Your PB will...

    Why choose TF-100 or Taylor K2006? And, preview of the new TF-Pro and TF-Pro SALT

    That new TF100 box and packaging looks really nice. I like it a lot!

    Slamming works!!!

    Nice job, but don't be afraid of chlorine. When you add liquid chlorine, aim for the max ppm for your CYA level. Your water will feel no different, but you will have a much larger safety margin.
