    help reading results

    I just ordered the TF-100 kit but meanwhile I took a sample to my local store
    here are the results. I plugged the results into the the pool math calculator. Do I add all the recommendations at once? Do I raise the CYA first?
    Where do most people buy chemicals from?

    Thanks in advance

    FC .6
    CC .25
    PH 7.7
    TA 81
    CH 45
    CYA 3

    PH, is fine. Get that FC up to 4 before anything else. Use plain liquid bleach. Take CYA to 30 to start and adjust your minimum and target FC per the Chlorine/CYA chart in Pool School. How are you chlorinating? Please add a signature line to your profile outlining all your pool particulars for us. If vinyl lined, your CH is fine, if not......we're gonna have to bump that up.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I added the shock and added 4lb's to a sock with Stabilizer.

    Currently I have a floating chlorinator. I was looking at buying a Hayward CL200 In-Line Chlorinator

    Welcome to TFP

    Whoa.....hold up on the floating chlorinator as that is also going to be adding CYA to your pool most likely. Have you done any reading in pool school? I'd be very suspect of the stores test that says CYA is 3. Is this a fresh fill of water? If not, how have you been chlorinating until now? What does your water look like?

    Hi Aimee thanks for the response. It's kinda a new fill. I had the pool installed end of last year or was only open for a few weeks last year. All I did last year was shock it. The water is looking good and clear.
