    Testing on 4/24/2010

    Done with my TF-100 kit

    TC 12.5
    CC 0
    pH 7.4
    TA 140
    CH 320

    So it look like my TA is too high, correct?

    yes, the chlorine is too high still form the pool store advising to shock with SWG and raise it to 45% output

    Turn your SWG off for a few days.... test daily and turn it back on when the FC is in range...

    what's your CYA level...12.5ppm may not be all that high. TA at 140 is high but not un-manageable.

    Open a bottle of PoP

    It's ok to swim if that's why you are wondering... anything up to shock level is perfectly fine for swimming
