I was hoping for some guidance. I just bought the TFP test Kit after reading reviews about it. Previously, I always used the basic strips from commercial stores. My water has always been clear and I have few problems with water balancing (or so I thought). My results after using TFP’s kit are confusing to me and I wonder if I am doing something wrong: My results were:
The Chlorine drop test took 19 drops to get it “totally” clear. TA test only turns pink, it never turned red- is this an issue? For CYA testing, is the black dot supposed to be completely hidden? CH turned pink, not red…is this considered red in the test? Calcium is present…is that bad?
To check my accuracy, I brought my water to a pool store. He did a thorough test. There results (the same day I tested my water myself with TFP) were:
Any advice? Thanks!
