Hello, I am totally new to owning a pool. I already see I erred on buying chemicals from a pool store, but I figured you guys can at least give me tips on how to get my pool into ready shape.
Above ground Vinyl Liner 27' approx 17200 gallons.
Opened pool. Finally figured out how to connect the pump and filter. He has two return lines. Not sure why. I am currently using one on the bottom of the pool because the top one alone caused too much pressure and the gasket on the filter pod to blow out.
The pool is a greenish hue but clear when taken in a tube.
PH was 8.4
Alkalinity was 80.
Hardness was 30.
CYA was 0.
FC was 0.
I have stabilizer. PH Minus. Hardness adder. TA Plus. Chlorine Tablets.
Added 15 lbs TA. An hour later I added 4lbs PH Minus. Added Hardness Plus 10lbs. Added Stabilizer an hour later.
Going to shock the pool tonight with 1.4lbs tko. Then add chlorine tablets to the floater.
Is this the correct order? I assume then tomorrow I will do new tests and continue adjusting from then to get...
Feel free to tell me what I did wrong or how to do it better. Completely new to this.
