    Initial Test Results after New Start Up

    Pool was just started up Sunday and after adding acid, shock, bleach, hardness control*, and stablizer* (* items suggested by pool supply house), the first batch of results using the TF100 kit are:

    PH - 7.2
    FC - 3.5
    CC - 0
    TC - 3.5
    TA - 90
    CH - 300 (was at 125 from Pool Supply results)
    CYA - <20 (was the same before)

    I know I need to work on the CYA and continue to monitor FC/PH levels for awhile. Any additional thoughts?

    Well, your numbers look good except for CYA so I believe all you have to do is bring your CYA up to around 40-50 ppm and start swimming! Nice work!

    Thanks - this forum is a huge help and have been browsing around for several weeks during the build process.
