Our pool was Bromine until we replaced the liner and subsequently the water. I have been circulating water for about 60 hours since the pool filled About to start using the TFPC method as I have been reading this site for several weeks now and am convinced it is the best way to go. the chemistry in my pool has become my new hobby..lol. My Taylor 2006 doesn't arrive until next week so had to us the Pool Store to get accurate readings on my water. They have some good equipment to test the water and provide a computerized printout of the report, with recommended steps to follow to correct the water problems. At this point I have not followed any of their instructions. Here are the results of the water test.
FC .55 Total C .78. CC .23
ph 7.7 TA 85 ppm
Hardness, which I assume is CH 135 ppm
CYA 9 ppm copper 0 ppm Iron .2 ppm
presently I am adding Stabilizer to get it to 30 ppm. Store recommends I shock, should I? I am not sure the CC calls for a shock? Any advice?
