Hello everyone!! I have finally moved into my new house and did my first test today using the TF100 Test Kit. Below are my results.
FC - 7
PH - 8.2
TA - 80
CH - 330
CYA - 10
Salt - 2710
Borates - 15
Temp - 74
I obviously know that my FC & PH are high and my CYA, Salt & Borates are low. I will get these corrected using the Jason's Pool Calculator.
Here are my questions...
1) When testing my TA, after 8 drops it turned a light pink but more of a red after 9. The instructions were looking for Red so which one should I use?
2) My Mineral Springs Unit has a "Sanitizer Output Control %" dial that was set at about 80%. I am assuming that controls the FC basically in my pool by converting the salt to chlorine. After these tests, I dropped that to 50% for now. Should that be a good place to start to bring down the FC?
3) When testing the CYA, I added the mixed sample into the vial but was able to see the black dot even while the vial was full. It was harder to see and bacame cloudier, but I was still able to see it looking down into it. Did I maybe do something wrong or is my CYA just that low?
I also have the details from the SWG unit that it displays as you go through the menus....
74 - Temp I know
Not sure what these are right now or if they help but figured it can’t hurt to provide them.
Well please share your thoughts and opinions. In the meantime, I am off to Jason's Pool Calculator to get things corrected.
