    Need advice with my numbers

    My numbers:

    FC = 0.5
    TC = 0.6
    PH = over 8.2
    TA = 220

    Based on pool calculator:

    Bring FC to 4, I need 28 oz of bleach
    Bring PH down 7.5, I need 18 oz of M.A to reduce PH and then aerate to increase pH so TA will go down ???

    Am I on the right track?

    Just got back from Lowes with M.A and Bleach

    Your missing the CYA number. It's important for your FC.
    PH needs to be lower. 7.2-7.8.

    What test kit are you using ?

    My test kit doesn't measure the CYA.

    What can I do at this point?

    You need to have a test kit that measures cya. The kit we recommend here is the tf100.

    FC and CYA go hand in hand. Have you read pool school ?
    If you haven't you need to read it. Also look at the CYA FC chart.

    Your next step is to buy a good test kit that tests it all. You can find a link in my siggy below. Once you get it you will be on the right track.

    For right now do as you say with the acid and such.

    If you do not knowyour CYA you will not be able to really control you FC.

    Good luck and let us know how it is going.

    Are you sure that TA is correct ? Almost looks like a CH number.

    Is it safe to swim before I pour the chem in? My kids want to get in. The water looks crystal clean.

    Just ordered a 2006kit

    I don't see why not. I'd get some chlorine in there. Put enough in for 30 ppm of CYA until you can test for a real CYA number. Check FC daily. Get your PH down also.

    When you get your test kit get back to us.
