    New Pool, need HELP with TFPC startup

    We have had a pool for over 30 years and have used the TFPC method for the past 6-7 years with wonderful results. As the liner needed replaced it was obviously time to do a whole new pool. This is the first time we have started from scratch with TFPC method and I am not sure of the order of adding stabilizer, bleach and muratic acid (hard water for much of the fill, so I am sure we will have high TA) with no chemicals in to start with. Need some guidance getting started and then we will be fine. Thanks!

    Order matters very little since you can do it all in less than an hour.

    Fill. Circulate. Test. Report.

    You know your CYA and likely also the FC are 0. Add some bleach. Get the CYA dissolving. Adjust the pH. 15 minutes and you may be done initially.
