    Brand new here and new pool owner with a question...

    Hi!! This is my first time on the forum. I read Pool School and I feel good about using the BBB method. Last week we finished filling our 14k gallon pool and tested it, added the necessary chemicals, and have been sailing along. I have one question about my test results from this morning though, if someone would be willing to help me.

    FC - 5
    CC - 0
    PH - 7.6
    TA - 90
    CYA - 40
    CH - 20

    I am wondering about the calcium level. I read that having the level too high is bad, and I might have to exchange water to get the level down. My level right now is low according to The Pool Calculator. Is calcium necessary for an agp with a vinyl liner?

    Welcome to TFP!
    Those numbers look great! No CH is needed for a vinyl liner.

    Thanks!! Can I stop testing for it then, or do I still need to keep up with it?

    Your fill water obviously has very low CH. I'd quit worrying about it. Enjoy!
