    Ideal Level Cheat Sheet

    I'm sure many of you already committed the ideal chemistry levels to memory, but this is my first year as a pool owner, and as such, I am struggling to figure out the proper chemical levels. From reading almost anything I can get my hands on (primarily this website which rocks! ), I have come up with the attached levels (hope you have MS Excel).

    I stole the format from Dave's Test Kit and use it when testing my chemicals.

    Does anyone see anything wrong with these "ideal" levels? Any room for improvement? Is there a sheet already out there that I should be looking at vs. making my own?

    That looks like a wonderful starting point. There are however many exceptions to the normal guidelines. These numbers won't work for every pool. See this thread for a discusion of some of the exceptions.
