Received my TF-100 today and am very pleased. My first test results are as follows:
PH: 7.3 - 7.4 (still a little hard for me to distinguish the colors, but more pink than orange)
CC: <0.5 (but there is some!)
CYA: 60-70 (closer to 60, I think)
I know at my CYA level I need to get my FC in the range of 5-9ppm, but do you think I need to shock the pool first? The CC test did turn pink and one drop turned it back to clear so I know there is some CC in the pool but less than 0.5. I figured I would leave the PH alone for now since I am using liquid bleach to chlorinate and shock and that should slowly increase the PH.
The water looks real good and my pool description is in my signature.
Am I on the right track?
