Pool info in the signature. We just filled our new pool mid last week and the startup guy came on Friday. He added acid and threw in the tabs and CYA (into skimmmer). Not really sure what type of startup he did outside of that.
I tested the water (TFTest kit) after he left and here are the results:
FC = 1
CC = 0
TA = 80
CH = 200
CYA = the black dot never went away
PH = didn't test (see below)
FC = 1
CC = 0
TA = 90
CH = didn't measure again
CYA = the black dot went away when the tube was completely full
PH = 7.5
The pool calculator tells me to add:
100 oz of 8.25 bleach
52 oz of baking soda
59 oz of stabilizer
When the guy left he said to just keep tabs in the skimmer and that's it! I'll be following the BBB method, and I've read pool school, but I'm still not sure what to add at this point. Do I add the stuff according to the pool calculator? Or, since this is brand new should I just leave the tabs in for a bit and let things rise gradually? Looks like I shouldn't go crazy adding CYA since that takes a little while to register. Right?
Thanks, I'm looking forward to starting with BBB and keeping the pool in tip top shape!
