    New Pool - Pre- SWG Installation Chemistry

    New pool opened this weekend. The SWG is not in yet, being completed W this coming week. Levels are:

    FC - 1
    pH - 7.2
    TA - 40
    CYA - 0
    Hard - 210

    I was going to add shock with Stabilizer to raise Cl and CYA, but not not sure about TA and pH. Should I balance everything now, or wait for SWG to be installed?

    Heres the new pool. Still active construction, but we are swimming!

    I have two links for you. I hope these help.

    That is a pretty pool!

    The person you should really be asking is the PB as he holds the warranty card! (I just thought of that-opps!)

    Do you have a good test kit yet? Look in my siggy to find the ones we use and love.

    Thanks. I know the levels are low, just didn't know if i should adjust them before the SWG was installed. But I think you hit the nail on the head. Keep, Cl up and let the PB deal with it due to warranty issues. Thanks

    you can add shock with stabilizer to bring up both FC an CYA, but be aware at the stabilizer in the shock is acidic and may probably drive your pH down. Of course depending on how much you add will be the determining factor. So dont be surprised if that happens and be ready to raise the pH back up to Low 7's if that happens.
