Finally broke ground today on our new pool installation--just a couple quick questions about the TFPC method when starting from scratch. I have a TF-100 on order.
Pool is an IG Fiberglass Viking Coronado, 13000 gallons, Pentair Intelliflo VS pump, Pentair Cartridge filter (320), Intellichlor SWG, and Pentair electric heat pump (125 btu). I'm located in the Philadelphia suburbs.
I have been lurking here for a couple months, reading about water chemistry and the basics of TFPC. Once the pool is filled, what order do I begin balancing water chemistry? Builder will be adding the salt.
From what I've read here:
1. Add cyanuric acid to 70-80 ppm, as well as bleach initially to keep FC levels adequate. Ground temps (and I'm assuming water temps) are averaging around 65F right now.
2. Adjust TA to 60-80 ppm.
3. Adjust pH to 7.2-7.8.
4. Adjust Calcium hardness to 220-320 ppm.
Does this sound about right? Am I missing anything obvious right now?
Any help would be much appreciated. First time pool owner here, and I'd like to start this off on the right foot.
