    Test results in, needing advice

    Results are:


    • FC - 0
    • PH - 8+ (5 drops so assuming I add the recommended 1.43 qt muriatic acid)
    • TA - 130 ppm
    • CH - 100 ppm
    • CYA - dot never disappeared so I assume <30 ppm


    • CC - Combined Chlorine 0


    Water temp 75
    Using Taylor 2006 kit

    Would appreciate advice. Thank you!

    pH first. Target 7.5 in case you overshoot. Get some CYA dissolving in a sock, use Pool Math to aim for 20. Add enough chlorine to get to 3 (Pool Math again).

    How's the water look?

    The water looks perfect. How do I determine how much CYA I have now if the test did not tell me?

    If you never put a puck or shock or any solid chlorine you can assume 0.

    If it is a fresh fill then it is 0 and I would add 30 ppm If not, then add 20 and see where you end up. More here on adding CYA and other chems, Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals
