    New Liner New water New chemicals?

    I just replace my liner so all of the water is new. It is groundwater. All I have added is chlorine. The calculator says it is not for setup.

    Cl 3.5
    PH 7.2
    TA 20
    CYA 0

    There didn't appear to be any combined chlorine.
    I've maintained the pool for about 4 years now. The PH and TA stays really constant. I know that the PH and total alkalinity play against each other. I was hoping you guys could get me started balancing this thing out.
    I'll probably leave the CYA at 0 and watch the chlorine for a little while. I may want to take some water down and work on a light when it warms up some.

    Well, it really isn't in too bad of shape. Have you read pool school and do you know what the normal ranges should be?

    I know the ranges. I just wasn't sure exactly how to get the TA up without fighting the PH. I usually just have to add chlorine and a little CYA. The PH and TA have always been good. I got results from the calculator but it says not for setup.

    Raise TA with Baking Soda. It will have very little affect on pH.
