I am ready to get started on my pool!!! We have not taken the cover off yet due to lacking a part for the filter but plan to have that in hand sometime this week. The water does look clear with a little bit of something on the bottom... looks like dirt that sifted through the cover maybe. It is definitely not the green murky mess we started with last year thanks to this website!!!!!!
I have been trying to read in the Pool School and I think I know where to start but just wanted some reassurance from the experts!!
I have tested my water and here are my results:
FC - 0
CC - 0
pH - 7.0
TA - 60
CH - 50 (seems really low compared to last year)
CYA - 0
If I understand correctly, it looks like I should spend the first few days using dichlor to add chlorine while it raises my CYA level. Water is still cold... around 72 degrees so I don't think we will be jumping in any time soon! Once my CYA reaches 30 ... is that when I start adjusting the pH???
