    Another newbee starting 1000 gal. Pool

    Hi
    trying to get my reading correct
    i cover my pool with styrofoam sheets, insulated the walls and have this little guy on styrofoamed pad under sand to help keep the temp more level.
    My question is how do I get the chemistry balanced?
    fc 10
    cc 10
    ph 6.8
    ta 40
    ch 0
    cya 0
    temp 28 C 82 F
    its a little cloudy
    thanks for your consideration in advance
    cheers
    Mike

    there is a great app in the pool school section that you can enter your current #'s into and your target #'s. It will then tell you what and how much to add.
