We had complete fill on our Finest Finishes (Gemstone) Radiant Fusion plaster last Friday. I have tested a couple of times but did not add anything as the pool had not been turned over to us until just yesterday. I tested last night but was too late to get any chems to add.
I retested this morning:
Air temp 81
Pool temp 88
Salt cell reading 2998
14800 gallons (based on pool math calculator)
CYA aprox 60
According to pool math I need to add 18oz MA, 329oz calcium chloride, and 20oz stabilizer
If I understand what I'm reading correctly, I add the MA to a bucket of water and pour in front of a return (with the pump on high), wait about 15 minutes (?), broadcast the calcium chloride across the deepest part of the pool (in my case the middle), and put the stabilizer in a sock in a skimmer basket.
The stabilizer makes me nervous. I did the CYA test twice. It could be 70 but I'm not 100% certain. I just don't want to overdose on the stabilizer and have to empty any water from the pool to lower it.
That's ALOT of calcium chloride!! I found it at lowes but I didn't buy enough. I only have 80 oz so I'll be heading there shortly to get more.
