    First test with the TF-Pro...Calcium harness test question (Instructions and video have different quantities)

    I tested our fill water tonight...kind of surprised by the pH, but I tested with both a digital meter and the TP-Pro pH test. Here's what I found: pH 8.4 CH 75 TA 170

    First test with the TF-Pro...Calcium harness test question (Instructions and video have different quantities)

    As for lowering TA...I added a bit of Muriatic Acid this morning, and a bit more this evening...pH is about 7.4 now. Should I wait to start aeration until the pH measures around 7.0? Then try and bring pH back up a bit and repeat until TA is in range?

    First test with the TF-Pro...Calcium harness test question (Instructions and video have different quantities)

    Didn't know about "adjusted TA"...good to know the store tests are basically reporting a different number.

    First test with the TF-Pro...Calcium harness test question (Instructions and video have different quantities)

    Thanks for the suggestions...good idea to test the fill water CH and TA. About 3 weeks ago is when I started the process of learning how to handle our own chemicals, etc. Over the first week I drained approximately half the pool water and was testing at the local Leslies (didn't have our own...

    First test with the TF-Pro...Calcium harness test question (Instructions and video have different quantities)

    OK, re-ran some tests today and CH still came out higher than I'd expect (625), but much better. TA is still coming in around 150, so surprised that it could be so far off from the stores test, but I've run it multiple times so I'll assume the TF test is more accurate. I see the recommendation...

    First test with the TF-Pro...Calcium harness test question (Instructions and video have different quantities)

    Just got the TF-Pro test kit and ran all the tests I could. Two tests (CH and TA) had vastly different numbers than the last "Leslies Store" test and I noticed that the included instructions for performing Calcium Hardness tests are different than the example videos on YouTube. ( ) My calcium...

    New pool owner and TFP user...here's the history of our pool so far

    That's the plan...I only ran across this site a few days ago 😊 I was leaning towards the "TF-PRO WITH SPEEDSTIR"...seems to auto add the salt and pH meter to the options. Anyone use the pH meter?

    Thanks for providing such a great resource...learning a lot so far, and slowly getting our pool in order. I wanted to share the brief history of our pool since starting to use the TFP app to track and get any advice on how to proceed. We moved into our house last September just as the...
