    New Pool, First Test Results

    New inground plaster pool, going on week 2 with water. The builder has been stopping by every few days to add chemicals. Non saltwater pool, de filter, using Taylor K2006 test kit. First results are:
    Ph: 8.0
    TA 250
    CH 120
    CYA 30
    FC 0
    CC 0

    Not sure how accurate these are as it was the first time I did the test. Added the powder to the test tube and stayed clear. but it sounds like I need to add acid and bleach. Did add some granulated chlorine yesterday that the builder has here as the water was cloudy. Does that sound right?

    It is important to keep PH between 7.2 and 7.8 at all times. CH needs to be raised to 250. FC needs to be kept above minimum for your CYA at all times, FC/CYA Chart. When FC drops below minimum the pool is unsanitary because the kill rate for bacteria, viruses and pathogens is not sufficient to prevent person to person disease transmission, especially in kids. Algae will also grow. If you didn't wipe the tip on a damp cloth while doing the TA test it might be artificially high.
