    first self water test

    I just got my Taylor K2006 kit in and completed my first self water test. Results:
    Free Cl -2.4ppm
    Combined Cl- 0.2
    pH - 7.8
    Acid demand 2
    Total Alk- 130
    Hardness -540
    Cy Acid - 60
    Temp -78

    I did not see a test for Borate in the box. Do I need a separate test for that?
    I tried entering numbers in poolmath, but since I'm lacking Borate, not sure what to do.
    I'm also going to take water tomorrow to our testing place & see what results they get.

    What do I do now....
    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Welcome to the forum!

    You dont need that test unless you have added them to your pool, and I don't imagine you have, have you? Practice, and you'll get better and better, but don't let them fool you and sell you a bunch of stuff they say you need.
