    Hello Melinda, and welcome to TFP! Here are the chemicals we use at TFP: Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals.

    You may also find the Poolmath calculator helpful in calculating how much to add based on your pool size.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know. Welcome!

    For new water, please focus on:
    1 - Add stabilizer starting at 30 ppm for your CYA. Use the sock method soaking near a return jet.
    2 - Adjust PH between 7.2-7.8.
    3 - Add regular bleach to keep FC (free chlorine) at about 5-6 ppm. It may disappear quickly until your CYA begins to take effect, so watch that FC level closely to ensure no algae grows.
