Newbie into the pool world. Have an Intex Easy Set 18ftx48in round. After filling it yesterday and adding chemicals last night here are my numbers this moring using the Taylor K-2006 testing kit. The pool is in full sun most of the day. So without any CYA I am worried about FC loss.
I have on hand Bleach, Borax, Baking Soda, and Dichlor (as my stabilizer???) Pool Math shows that I need to add 3.5 oz of Muratic Acid and 30oz of Stabilizer.
Two questions that I have.... 1. Can I use Dichlor as my stabilizer? 2. Should I wait to add the MA until after I get the CYA up to 40 or so?
Thanks for your help!
