First off THANK YOU to everyone - my pool is beautiful and sparkly!
I thought I would have the pool store check my water just to see if I have everything right.
The pool store guy said my numbers looked great - then asked what I was using. When I said bleach his face fell and he said "OH we don't recommend that. But your numbers do seem good!" LOL
Anyways here's what the store readings were:
His only concern was the CYA - but when I run the test for CYA I get 50.
For about a week my FC is usually around 5 and by the end of the day is 2 - so each night I have been adding enough bleach to go back up to between 5-6 FC.
So which numbers would be more accurate - mine or the pool store's?
I also get a slightly lower number for PH - but it's hard for me to tell on that test - I wish there was an easier to read test for PH.
I am using the TF100 test kit.
One other question, how long after adding bleach do you wait before going in the pool?
