    As Dave said, you need to read all of Pool School but sepcifically This article. Learning to use the Pool Calc is also a good thing to do.

    You've come to the right place. As everyone has said, read Pool School, then bookmark the Clorine/CYA Chart there and The Pool Calculator.

    Then come back here and ask any questions that you have.

    Our first questions to you will be ..... What are your test values now? How are you testing to get those values?
