The pool is almost full and I am trying to use the pool calculator.
Please read and let me know if I am doing this correctly.
Okay, here are my numbers:
FC - 0
CC - FC did not turn pink so there was no point in going any further with that part of the test.
PH - 8.2
TA - 100
CH - 120
CYA - 0
Water temp - 78 degrees F
I will be connecting the pump/filter first thing in the morning. The water has only just reached the first
Port (going out to filter). My thoughts are that first priority is to get chlorine into the pool asap. So I will
be using just the filter/pump for now and hooking up the SWCG after I get things under control.
pH is 8.2 - As I understand it, I should first try to lower the pH a bit by adding 33 oz of dry acid (pH down) . Circulate this for 30 minutes.
Add 132 oz of 6% bleach and 59 oz of stabilizer (in a sock I suppose. On the ladder or in front of the return)
OR add 16 oz dichlor ( to bring up the chlorine and the CYA simultaneously knowing that either way the CYA won‘t show up on a test for a week)
Am I even close to being on the right track?
