You see, complicated. Complicated things are not fun and often dont get done. Compilcation is a relative term I will give that. But here is a classic case. If fastsporty could find a PS with an educated enough employee and a reliable test kit he could use strips and his store for the more accurate and complicated tests, CH CYA and such. KISS, keeping it simple.....Fastsporty77 said:Thanks. Really I opened the box the kits came in and went "Holy J's" as I hate complicated stuff.
I'll figure it out and ask here when I cannot. Never realised how hard a pool can be to keep stable.
But instead he comes to a site like this where the first thing he gets told is to get his own $200+ test kit and to spend hours and hours reading and learning how to test and balance his own water. Something that is not easy but is certainly worth it. What if he doesnt want to. What if he just wants to understand his pools chemistry and the operation and leave the serious testing to his store? Does that make him unprofessional? Would you think less of him? Not me, his time might better be invested elsewhere like a profitable business or his family.....
So the actual problem is finding a good enough PS that you trust and that gives good information and accurate testing, again something that is not too easy to find but worth it.
