Just received TF 100 kit today. Very fast delivery! Here's what I have:
FC, CC, TC = no color change...remained clear...assume we have no CL at all!
ph = 7.8
CH = 120
CYA = since the black dot never disappeared, I assume that means we have '0' CYA??
Obviously I need CL and CYA. If I get those in line, will that do anything to pH? This is where is all gets confusing. I understand it will take a week or so for the CYA to regulate itself after adding stablizer. Do I just add Cl right now and hold off on pH and TA until the Cl is situated? If I add bleach, I'm confused by the calculator as to what my goal should be? I assume now I want to shock, (or not?) but what do I put as my goal for that number??? Also, is it best to follow the recommended levels that are on the BBB site or whats posted inside TF 100 kit? They seem to be off somewhat.
Anyway, if someone could get me started I would be very grateful! Pool looks great so far...don't want to mess it up. We still have some cool rainy days ahead to buy me some time with algae.
