    TF-100 test kit question

    Yes I added some water about 5-6 days ago. I have not added any non - chlorine shock in about a week. I also do not cover the pool since our cover is not the best. I have older teenage kids and a 6 yr old but all get out multiple times to use the bathroom. Should I use the shock pods I have...

    TF-100 test kit question

    Thank you! I also have liquid clorox on hand. Do you suggest I take out the floater and just put the Liquid Clorox in? Would I do 3 cups of it?

    TF-100 test kit question

    Thank you! My water is not cloudy at all. Not seeing a whole lot of FC drop either but I will do that test you sent above. What would be best way for me to increase my CYA?

    TF-100 test kit question

    Hello. I just did the Chlorine drop test and followed each step. My FC was 6 ppm. My CC was 1. Last week I did test my CYA and it was at 30. I just watched the pool school videos and it said CC over 0.5 mean there is a problem? Can anyone help me on this?

    If we test alkalinity and decide to use the bleach moving forward would you recommend the 3 cups every day or how often?

    Thank you! I just did the CYA test and it's at 30 on the dot. As far as how to keep, CYA, PH, and chlorine in check what should I do? Continue with the PODS, or go to liquid chlorine. I think as of today my chlorine is high at 6.5 PPM

    Hello. We have used 8 of those PODS. We ended up doing every other day. We have not tested CYA yet.

    We just did the test and we had to put in 13 drops of the R0871 so I believe our chlorine is at 6.5 PPM. Very high. Is is safe to let the kids in tonight?

    Thank you very much! I appreciate that. I'm going to throw away my HTH test strips. They constantly tell me one day my chlorine is high the next day that it's low. They also always show my CYA and Alkalinity high. I'm so grateful for all of the wonderful peolpe i this group and all the advice. :)

    Please help me get my chemicals right

    Hi Richard, I only have a few more shock pods left and I'm unsure when my test kit will come so I bought the liquid bleach as a backup if I run out of the pods. Do you feel the shock pods are better than the liquid bleach or does it not really matter either way?

    Would this be the correct bleach to keep in my pool until my test kit comes in? If so would it be the 3 cups once a day? It's the Clorox Germicide.

    Please help me get my chemicals right

    Thank you! I just ordered the TF100. I will focus on the PH and restest so hopefully my kids can swim today. I also wanted to know how long after I add the shock pod should I wait to have the kids in there? My chlorine was low on the HTH test strip but that is ok as well?
