First I would like to thank TFP, I just realized that my chlorine test kit which is by Pentair ( 5 way test ) mentioned residual chlorine and I have always assumed it is free cholrine...my my, how dumb I was. Finally look closer at the TF-100 test kit and it has CYA and all the important FC CC TC......yipeee !!!!!
I been hunting down CYA test kit and the Indonesian dealer of La Motte wanted me to special order, they don't stock. I will also be charged a one time special chemical handling fee by air freight( I forgot how much but it was nasty like US$45 or something ) and i need to wait for 3 months. Anyway, I have ordered 2 test kit, one for me and one for a dear friend. I hope to get it within 45 days. I send it out to a USA address, and it will join my other shipment soon into Indonesia. Thank you Dave/Duraleigh.
So this is the story.
When I woke up at 7 am on 8th April, I was in for a shock. My pool was cloudy.
