    Easy Set Year 2 Chemical Confirmation

    I'm getting ready to set up my Easy Set pool for season 2. Last season, I discovered the Trouble Free Pool forum AFTER I had it setup and had purchased trichlor tabs and all the other silly stuff that friends suggested. I bought the TF 100 test kit and switched to BBB after the CYA level reached 30 and am happy to say I made it through last summer with NO algae outbreaks whatsoever.

    This year I want to start out following the Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools and just want to confirm some of the products I am preparing to order. I have found Dichlor and Polyquat 60 at the following links and just want to confirm that I am buying the correct stuff.

    If I am reading the guide correctly, I need 2.5 pounds. They come in 1 pound containers so I'll get 3.

    How much Polyquat would I need assuming a 5400 gallon pool and a swimming season of 16 weeks?

    Thanks for the help and thanks for the great site.

    That's the dichlor, and that's the polyquat 60.
    As for amounts of PQ60, that web page says initial treatment 6 to 11 oz per 10,000 gallons, and maintenance dose 2 to 4 oz per 10,000 gallons. So for your pool, 3-5 oz initial dose and 1-2 oz weekly after that. If you're good about maintaining the FC, I'd say use 1 oz weekly; if you have trouble, go with 2 oz.
    It's a quart bottle, so one should last you the season.

    Oops . . . I guess I should have read the whole page.

    Thanks for the info though.
