Hey guys, so I'm working on chemistry right now for my newly filled pool. Unfortunately the PB's setup was just a simple test strip and instructions to "go to the pool store" if the readings were not within parameters. Derp.
So it's a good thing I already purchased my TF-100 test kit!
The PB has already poured in a few gallons of liquid chlorine, and set up a floating puck dispenser. He also added some muriatic acid.
The pool is IG shotcrete pool, 22-23k gallons with new pebble sheen plaster
My readings this morning:
FC - 2
CH - 150
TA - 180
CYA - 0
CC - 0
PH - 7.8
Chemicals the PB left me: A small bucket of pucks for the floater thingy, and 2 gallons of MA.
I know these aren't ideal, and I've plugged some numbers into the pool math calculator, but it's telling me to add like 3 gallons 1 quart of calcium chloride, 1 quart 6oz of MA, 1quart 2oz of Bleach and 1 gallon 1 quart of stabilizer. Does this seem correct?
I know I can get the MA and Bleach easy enough, but do I go to the pool store for the stabilizer and calcium chloride? Should I remove the floating puck?
* I should note that this will be a salt pool, but right now we're waiting 30 days to let the pebble sheen cure, so it's manual chlorination until then.
