    Hello and welcome to TFP! You'll get more info from the TFP Pool School section (link below, but I'll give you a couple hints:
    - Adjust CYA to at least 30
    - Add regular bleach to increase FC to about 3 ppm on day one, then once your CYA is in the water increase FC to about 5 ppm
    - Adjust pH to the mid-7s.

    That's a very basic run-down. You would be best served to review the other vital link below in my sig, and oh ... make sure to update your profile signature as well as soon as you get a chance. Nice to have you with us.
