Good morning all.
Im new to this pool forum and have been reading all that I can for about 15 days.
Ive ordered and received the tf100 test kit and will be using the BBB.
We purchased a bank repo with a pool in Las Vegas, Gunnite just chipped out and will be plastered in 4 days.
30'x14' 8.5' deep end 4' shallow end.
It also came with a fiberglass hot tub that will be on the same pump-filter-heater system.
I came up with 19687 gal is this correct from the est?
pump---- variable speed inteliflow
filter--- pentair 420
heater---- pentair 400k btu
The bicarb start up seem to make sense for plaster longevity and from my understanding of reading "Start up new plaster" TA is to be maintained @ 100-350 ppm and ph below 8.2.
Which end of this range (100-350) is best? Why?
Would you fill immediately or let it cure for 4-6 hrs?
Others on this site have recommended 2 triclor pucks in the skimmer for the first 1-2 weeks and then bring up the fc slowly. Any thoughts on rate of increase of fc over time?
Should I have the baking soda pre mixed in buckets and ready to add as the pool fills, or is it ok to add after the fill?
current results of fill water to be used are
@ 19687 gal the numbers that I came up with are
163 oz bleach @ 6% to get to 4ppm
647 oz baking soda to get to TA of 300ppm
79 oz cya to get to 30ppm
What other questions should I be asking? or what am I missing?
Thank you for your time and for all of the other great and informative posts.
