    No longer testing

    "Shelf Life" of water sample

    Good morning all, My Brother-In-Law is a Noobe and a novice, and thus simply uses HTH test strips and has an app that uploads a photo of the resulting strip to get results and the recommended chemical$ to add. He's coming to visit me this weekend, and we discussed using my TF-100 to test his...

    So I think I have multiple leaks

    The most consistent thing about my leak(s) is the inconsistency... I "usually" lose between 3/8"-1/2" per day, although some days I lose none ! (Weird,huh). I run my filter for 12 hours per day, unless I'm needing add'l chemical circulation or filtering during start up. I've tried switching my...
