    Starting my pool for the first time new pool owner

    I am opening a new pool for the first time. I have done a lot of reding at your pool school and I understand the directions. Just wanted to know if you have any suggestions.
    My pool holds 8700 gallons.
    Fill Water
    7.6 Ph
    .6 FC
    1.3 Br
    30 ppm Alkalinity

    I ordered the Taylor kit K-2006 that you recommended it should be arriving today. I hope to be doing everything by tomorrow. Thanks for any advice in advance.

    Welcome to TFP.

    When you get the kit post a full set of test results. I'd go ahead and add some FC to the water. Wait on everything else until you get the kit.
