Bleached out a 2 year old liner with a massive Trichlor+CYA assault last year. Never again.
New vinyl liner just installed and filled with city water. Just fired up the pump and backwashed the filter (new sand last year). Holding 19psi with great flow.
Waiting on a TF100XL so picked up a cheap kit and had the locals do a water test. My results were pH maxed at 8.2 and Total Chlorine at less than 1 (very faint indication if at all).
Pool store results:
Free Chlorine 0
Total Chlorine 2
Total Alkalinity 100
Adjusted Total Alkalinity 100
Total Hardness 80
I assume 0 Borates
Water Temperature 70 Degrees
I'd like to use liquid bleach this season but I have a couple of questions.
I have a pound of granular CYA and 30+lbs of granular Dichlor in inventory. Can I use these to start the chlorination/stabilization process?
Should my first step be to adjust the pH?
I'm going back to the Pool School to study ALL the information.
