I understand it’s not ideal, and in a perfect world I would only use the test kit. I just wanted to know if I was missing a step when calculating the result with the recommended dosing.No idea. Without accurate testing data we do not know. Pool store tests are not used for guidance here on TFP.
Thank you! I may have been overthinking it all. Usually the pool store recommendations are crazy, but wanted to make sure I’m not using the calculator wrong when entering results.Maybe I'm over-simplifying, but pool math says 33oz and pool store says a lot more than that. Simply add the 33 oz and re-test in 30 minutes to see if you hit the pH you were looking for. If not, repeat until you get there.
