We got our TF test kit the other day and here is our first set of readings. We actually did a test last night and got two different readings. Results were a little different and fairly close, so I assume we are doing this right.
ALK 200 (thought it might have been done wrong during test)
WATER TEMP 82
Todays Results (one approx same time of day)
ALK 200 (same as yesterdays results)
Tonight after the test was done we added water to bring it up to the required level in the pool so the CYA should drop some( how many gallons did we add?...have no idea) . We have also have had a solar blanket on the pool since we had a run in with the algae problem a few weeks ago thus the high chlorine level. Is it worth adding some muriatic acid to bring the ALK level down if we will be closing the pool in a few weeks or just leave it alone? When we close the pool for the winter will the high ALK level affect the winter shocking and algae treatment.
