After using 3" chlorine tabs for years I decided this week to switch to the BBB method. My pool has been cloudy and I could see algae starting. I pulled out my floaters of tabs on Tuesday and added liquid Bleach, not sure what level was at time, because my test kit only tested to 5.
I just got my tf-100 today and had question about CH test. After adding R-11L, the water turned a dark pink (not red) and then when adding R-12 one drop at time it went from pink to clear but never blue. It took 15 drops to go to clear, so do I read that as CH 150??
Here are my other readings.
Pool green and cloudy, I adding Liquid chlorine yesterday.
CH 150 (not sure on this one)
So I know I need to drain off water to lower cya. I will start that later today.
I am aerating pool by running my spa to lower TA.
Is my CH correct? Is reading correct or is chlorine level throwing it off.
