My Water Is A Bit Off


Recommended Posts

What are all of your readings?

I don't have one of those testing equipment I usually take the water at a pool supply place and have it tested. What I used in this instant was the test strip. It just said the free chlorine was high, the Alk was very low the ph was border line.

You can't manage your water using test strips. You need accurate readings for the following to decide what to do:

Free Chlorine

Combined Chlorine


Total Alkalinity

Calcium Hardness

Cyanuric acid.



Water temperature


If your chlorine is too high, you need to turn your chlorinator off.
