Sine my conversion I have been very diligent in testing my water at night to keep a constant chlorine level.
Here is my problem. I am trying to use the cheap test kit nightly, so when I test it is always reading very dark yellow (over 5 ppm) on that kit. But when I test it with my TF-100 it only gives me a reading of somewhere between 3 and 4 on the same nights as the 5+ ppm from the other test. I like to add enough to keep it at about 6 or 7 to allow for the burnoff of the chlorine during the day.
So my question is, if I'm going to go ahead and use the cheap test during the week, is it ok to assume that when it reads 5+, just to go ahead and dose like it was 3 or 4 so I don't burn through all my good test solutions? or am I over-chlorinating?
I hope you all understand my ramblings..lol..thank you for all your help!
