I rarely every go to Leslies pool store unless i have to, but decided to get my water tested by the fine folks at leslie and once again, i was told that i needed to purchase 200 worth of chemicals or I was a horrible person, more or less. nedless to say, i did not purchase them, but am curious as to your take on a few things:
Here are the numbers:
TA: 130 (even though my testing says 90)
CYA: 100 (dont know how it got this high since i do not use my inline chlorinator)
TDS: 2500 (dont know what this is)
Salinity: 2600 (I added salt last year to soften up the water a bit since the kids eyes
were burning, and it worked fabulously)
Pool looks great, crystal clear, no issues.
Do i need to drain my pool as the 19 year old at Leslies said i needed to do to bring my TDS down? He also chastised me for adding a bit of salt and for using liquid chlorine. I added salt after checking this forum to make sure it was ok.
Its amazing how they can make you feel like you are running a sewage treatment pond.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
