    Congrats on the pool and the new test kit!

    How does the water look?

    Why is FC 70? That is WAY high.

    TA is high and will likely cause PH to rise. When PH gets to 7.8 add muriatic acid to lower it to 7.2. This will cause TA to lower, Pool School - Lower Total Alkalinity.

    Add 30 ppm of CYA in a sock and put it in the skimmer, squeeze it a few times a day to help it dissolve.

    An FC of 70 seems awfully high. Are you sure?

    I multiplied by 2

    How big was the sample? If you used 25 ml of water, then FC is 7.0. The multiplier is .2 If you used 10 ml of water, the multiplier is .5, which would make it 17.5.

    Did the CYA sample get at all cloudy when you mixed half pool water with half reagent? If so, you have some CYA in there, just not enough. Raise it carefully in that case. Aim low. You can always add more later, but removing excess involves draining and rebalancing.

    Yes. Hop in if you want. 7 FC is well below shock level for zero CYA. And if you have any CYA at all - any cloudiness in the test tube - even further below. You still need to raise CYA some, but you won't be losing any chlorine after dark.

    These?

    FC 7 Above minimum and below shock level for <20 CYA = good
    CC 0 Perfect
    PH 7.6 Between 7.2>7.8 Good
    TA 180 High. Not harmful. Will go down each time you add acid to lower pH.
    CH 200 Lowish.
    CYA still waiting for an answer from you. Did it get cloudy at all?

    When I plug your numbers into poolmath, I don't see CSI as being corrosive to plaster. If you're worried about the low CH, you can try adding Calcium Chloride. I have never ever had to add CH to my pool, so my knowledge of that stuff is zero.

    The CYA test is hard. Watch the video and perform it during the day with your back to the sun and holding the bottle at your waist.

    I add calcium chloride to my pool. I must have real low calcium in my full water because I have a hard time keeping the CH up. It's easy to add and directions can be found in pool school.
