    Newbie here. Just fill up my 22,000gal agp. Here are my test results with two chlorin

    CYA-0
    Chlorine-0
    PH-8
    Hardness-125

    I have no clue what I'm doing

    Re: Newbie here. Just fill up my 22,000gal agp. Here are my test results with two chl

    1) Get the pump and filter going.
    2) Add 2 ppm FC using bleach. Poolmath can crunch the numbers for you. Expect it all to disappear within hours.
    3) Add 40 CYA using the sock method
    4) By the time you're done messing with the sock, the chlorine will have mixed and you add some acid to get pH to 7.4. 7.2 will work better to lower the TA, but the pool volume isn't always what you calculate. Better to underdose than overdose.
    5) Grit your teeth against the chilly water and
    6) Day two: add 3 FC. Recheck pH and TA and adjust if pH is above 7.8.
    7) Day 3: The CYA should all be dissolved, so target 6 FC. Target, don't add. You might have some residual, so test first and let poolmath tell you how much
    8) Days 4-6, Target 6 FC and keep pH between 7.2 and 7.8. Probably need to brush and vacuum somewhere in there.
    9) Day 7, measure CYA. Run all the tests in fact. Post results.

    It's really just that simple. You're starting fresh, so you can be in complete control from day one.

    Oops. I see you have updated and posted again. You shouldn't be adding metals to the water. Those pucks add zinc. Also CYA. A steady diet of those pucks will drive CYA too high, cause pH to crash, and ultimately stain the liner. It's sad to see you give up on our methods before you even gave them a chance.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Sorry, I really didn't know the methods. I printed out pool school but it was a little confusing where to start with a fresh new pool

    Pump and filter have been running for about 3 days and the pucks have been in there for three days

    Hi Ranchdip, I gotta ask, what are you testing with. a good test kit, I hope. I would remove the pucks and follow Richard directions. don't know how much CYA is in your pool from pucks, But I bet Richard will know. (he's very knowledgable )

    Inside in the air conditioning would have been better.

    Today's results. Hopefully my kit hasn't been compromised since it wasn't air conditioned.

    FC= 1.5ppm
    TA=170
    CH=150
    Ph= 7.5

    Quick question: I have the stabilizer going in the sock. Considering my current numbers. Can I let my boys swim?

    It is safe to swim when
    PH is 7.2 to 7.8
    Chlorine is above minimum and below shock level
    for your CYA, Chlorine CYA Chart
    Water is clear

    Thanks! So, even though I have stabilizer leaching through the sock at this time it's ok to swim in? Thanks so much guys! I really feel I'm getting a grip on this.
