    Some Imput..

    Just put new liner in pool last week. Filled it up on Monday. had 0 CYA added 4 lbs of stablizer. Came up to about 20. Then the rain came an killed it I guess. Its at zero today. Just ordered some new test supplies mine are a year old an not sure if still good.

    FC 2.5 = at am check added a gallon to get it back to 5
    PH 7.5
    TA 120
    CH 110
    CYA 0 = I think from test

    With CYA that low, keeping FC at 3-4ppm should be fine. To get to 30ppm CYA in a 26K gal pool, you need about 6-7lbs stabilizer in total. Since you had some rain and you already added 4lbs, add another 3lbs and wait a week to test. Assume your CYA level is at 30ppm and shoot for an FC target of 4ppm.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks can you suggest a run time on the pump?

    I run mine about 6hr/day. Given it sounds like you have a lot of heat and double the water volume, try the 10-12 hours and if the water is still sparkly you may attempt 8hrs/day

    I'd start the pump at hours a day and then see if you lower it from there.

    With almost 20K posts (yes.. Jason I'm watching), I'm thinking he missed the key

    running it in the 8-12 range should be fine, just keep an eye on how polished the water looks. You are aiming for at least one turnover and if I conservatively estimate 45gal/min=2,700gal/hour=27,000/10hours

    Your pump may get more gpm or less, hence the broad pump run time recommendation
