Okay, baqua to BBB conversion is done and now I need to get balanced. Is this the correct forum to post on? If not then one of the moderators can feel free to move it to the correct one.
Pool looks great and I want to keep it that way. I took all my readings yesterday and 5:45 PM and here they are. I have some questions about some of them
PH 7.5 - 7.8
CYA 20 or less
Here are my questions about these tests.
PH - Is there a better way to test PH? I am having a hard time telling where the color matches up with the numbers exactly and there is only 7.5 (which I think the color of water was slighty darker but not sure) and 7.8. The color was somewhere between the two marks but I don't feel real comfortable with the accuracy of the test.
TA - I know you keep dropping drops in until it gets red, but how red do you want it? My TA seems to be pretty high.
CH - seemed to be pretty clear. once it started to change it turned blue pretty quickly and I stopped. How dark of a blue do I want it though?
CYA - I filled the tube all the way and could still barely see the black dot so I think that means less than 20 ppm. I put 4 lbs of CYA in the pool last week end so I thought that it should be 40 by now. What should I do? Wait or add more CYA?
