    Test the water you will be filling with and post the results.

    You won't have any CYA in it so don't test for that and it's not necessary to test for FC and CC's but test for TA, pH, and CH.

    Hey, ikrus,

    I moved this post into the one you started. Generally, it is a good rule to keep as many of your posts as possible under one thread so everyone can follow your "story"

    I'm gonna' turn the question around just a bit and ask you, "What do you see that will need to be adjusted?" Normal ranges for those parameters you tested can be found in Pool School in "The ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry" take a look at them and post back what you think.

    This isn't a quiz at all and I hope it doesn't come across as being rude. There is a wealth of information up in Pool School and we try to get all the newbies to read it over and over....it's a great reference.
