    Old pool in AZ with new owner

    Just completed my first test with the Taylor kit K2006

    The results:
    FC - 3ppm
    CC - .2ppm

    pH - 7.6

    TA - 80 ppm
    CH - 400ppm
    CYA - 62ppm

    Plus, I wanted to look into adding Borax to the pool.

    Any advice on what I need to do with these levels?

    Thanks,

    What does your water look like?

    Your FC level is too low. With CYA around 60 you want FC to be between 5 and 9, and never below 5.

    The water looks great actually.

    I'm heading to the store now to pick up some bleach.

    Is there any thing I need to adjust given that my pool gets full sun all day long?

    Not because of the full sun but I would suggest you keep the pH down around 7.2 - 7.4 to reduce the opportunities for calcium scaling. You CH is at the upper limit of normal but can be handled easily by keeping pH down on the low side.

    Bring up your FC as JasonLion suggests and go swimming.

    Other than the FC level your numbers look alright. Keep an eye on the CH level, it is likely to go up. If it does go up you may need to lower your TA and keep tight control over the PH.
