    If any results seem weird, check out Pool School - Extended Test Kit Directions

    There's also videos demonstrating each test https://www.youtube.com/user/TF100TestKit/videos

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    First teat using daily. Chlorine looks high(est), correct?

    I am going to try the weekly test now.

    Bring up that weekly test results. To me, your ph looks around 8.0 with at least 5 ppm chlorine.

    I just posted the following in a new thread...


    First time using TF Test Kit

    Chlorine Test-Daily (goal 2 ppm)
    5/16 - 5 to 10 (simple test strip was "high" as well)


    Chlorine Test - Weekly:
    5/16
    FC = 8 (16 drops x .5)
    CC = 1 (2 drops x .5)
    TC = 9 (8 + 1)

    My salt dropped to 2800 due to lots of rain (I guess). I added two 40lbs of salt (one per day to learn the incremental increase) over the last two days. Salt is currently at 3200 per intellichlor (verified with salt test strip). Salt generator is set to 38%.

    Unsure what the next step is. Turn down salt generator and if so to what level?

    Posting in a new thread was a mistake.....I have no idea where that thread is and cannot reply.
