    FC 0 = add 117 oz bleach 6%...got it...using value brand from wally world

    CC 0

    TC 1.0

    PH 6.8 = add 150 oz Borax...got it ready

    TA 90 = add 33 oz Baking soda...got Arm and Hammer ready to go

    CH 100 = add 167 calcium chloride or CC dehydrate...which one? where do i get it?

    CYA 0 = black dot never disappeared...add 195 oz of liquid stabilizer...where do i get it?

    Sounds good, just keep in mind that your FC will buen off quickly until you get the stabilizer in there.

    You can't have TC without FC or CC, You probably got this number from the K-1000 test so that's ok.

    You could aerate it up but since you already have the Borax it'll work fine.

    Your TA is fine. Don't do anything to it.

    Vinyl pools don't need CH so you's is fine. Don't worry about adding unless you have a heater or etc. that requires it for warranty.

    You can get stabilizer/conditioner (cyanuric acid) at most big box stores. (Walmart, Lowes, HD, etc.)

    Save your money on the liquid - use granular (cheap at Wallyworld in a 4 lb cannister) and use the "sock method" for adding it
