Water Test after changing to Zeoclere and Jolly Gel

Postby jandrace » Wed 25 Jul, 2012 13:57

I had my pool water tested today and was advised that some of the readings were dangerous. I use Zeoclere in the filter and Jolly Gel and wondered if there was anything in these products that might give these readings. The clarity of my water is excellent, there is no pungent smell of chlorine and no bathers suffer from skin or eye irritation. I am confused because I thought Cyanuric Acid caused ‘Chlorine Lock’ (above 5.5ppm) and my free chlorine is low. I have no problems increasing the chlorine level and after a couple of days the level drops, after adding dichloro the level rises again. I can also raise the pH using soda and after a period this drops. I live in Cyprus where temperatures are high and the sun is strong UV level 10/11 most days.

Tester used - Palin Test 7100.

Free clorine 0.4ppm suggested level 1-5ppm, I would say you should be at least 3-4ppm at this time of year.
Ph 6.7 should be between 7.2 and 7.6
Total Alkalinity 100ppm good, suggested level 80-120ppm
Calcium hardness 43ppm very low should be between 200 and 400 ppm
Cyanuric Acid 201 ppm very high should be between 30 - 50ppm anything below 80 is fine
