    Just got my TFP test kit and tested my water.

    FC: 2
    CC: 0.5
    TC: 2.5
    PH: 7.2
    T/A: 100
    CH: 630
    CYA: 80

    So I added 260oz of 6% bleach to get it towards the high end of the best guess chart.

    I'll check tomorrow to see how it holds. However with the trees over my pool I always have to fight the FC due to organic matter in the pool.

    Quick sanity check though:

    In the instructions under Daily testing step 2 it says to add R-0003 (DPD) to test for chlorine. My kit came with R-0600 OTO for this. I think this is a typo as adding only R-0003 to the chlorine vial did not do anything.

    HD,

    Oops and double oops!! Not only was that stupid of me, but I even know (now) how I did it. My apologies.

    I'm gonna' make a seperate post letting all the kit owners know and I have corrected the text for all future kits.

    Thanks for being sharp-eyed.

    Thanks for that, at first I thought that my wife read it incorrectly, silly me thinking that

    I did a partial drain last night, appears to be ~2000 gallons, unintentionally when the hose came off my 3/4hp booster pump. At least I should see my CH go down after the refill. . .

    The neighbors now have a very wet backyard.

    I noticed that last night while I was reading over my kit. I read this thread earlier and figured it was a typo.

    Can't wait to get out and do some testing! Supposed to rain all day here though.
