I am in the process of following the recomended water balancing technique as taught in this great forum. My 2 months old pool were filled with pipe water with presumeably no or low CH and CYA. My existing 4 in 1 test kit can only test:
Acid Demand 0
Dave had shipped my TF100 and hopefully getting it next week before testing further. I've switched my SWG off and throw in 2 pcs of Trichlor tablet to get the chlorine and CYA as I cannot get CYA on it's own. However, my FC is still very low at 0.6 right after pump circulation and drop to 0.2 or 0 at the end of the day without any sun (rainy or cloudy day) and no bather. The water temp is 27 C or 80 F. The water are still clear so why is the FC not increasing. I'm thinking of throwing in some liquid chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite 10%) to bring the FC up and leave overnight to see if it works ( correct me if I'm wrong)and by how much? Once I got the TF100, I can check the CH and if low, can get Cal Hypo here to build it up but I cannot get Borax around. Can anybody advice on where I can get borax in other form and the consequent of not having Borates? Once my basic chemistry are in order, I'll switch back to SWG.
Thanks guys and ladies for your time.
