Hi, since getting my test kit, and reading up here, I have a much better understanding of keeping the pool up. My numbers today from my test kit: *note water is crystal clear
I have been keeping my target FC at 8.0 [no overnight loss]
So I go to the Pool Store to see what my water looks like to them. Obviously he tells me my Chlorine is to high, but there test's are just about what I get...so I'm happy.
Then he tells me the TDS are 2700, and phosphates are 2500. So my face gets red, cause ...hey I don't know...and he is drilling me about lowering them, trying to sell me some stuff to do that, other customers are telling me, yah drain the pool....buy this and that...lol...so I come home and read up here and feel much better.
Problem is I have taken the water to the PS about 5-6 times since March. The TDS numbers they have given me have been up and down from 1000>750>1200>1000>2700?? So man I don't know.
Any way so should I just ignore the TDS/Phosphate numbers??
