1. My hardness test never turns blue, but does turn a very light purple. Buggsw linked to a Tayler document earlier that says to put 5-6 drops of titrant prior to testing. How do I figure out which reagent is the titrant? I'm thinking it is the second reagant R-0012.
2. I'm having difficulty reading the PH test. The color appears to remain the same no matter the ph. It is a very light pinkish color. I thought it matched 7.2 but took my water to the pool store and it was 8.0! This made more sense as I've been putting lots of bleach in the pool and no acid. I then used my old kit (Rainbow brand) and it showed 8.0 also. After adding acid to reduce ph I tested again with the Taylor kit and the color had not changed. I then tested with my old kit and it showed 7.6. I'm keeping my FC at 15-20ppm trying to get it to stop using bleach. Is this causing issues? I know that for my old kit I have to add two drops of CL neutralizer, but the TFP-100 does not call for this.
Any help much appreciated.
