    Water Balance

    Hello all, finally got my pool up and running. To give you all background on pool, vinyl liner was just installed so the water is all new. Im in the process of adding stabilizer to raise CYA. My SWG is broken and I will be replacing next week so manually adding liquid bleach until then. Here are my levels:

    TC- 1
    TA - 90
    CH - 190
    PH - 7.2-7.5

    I will be adding the liquid chorine to maintain TC, but wondering if any of my other levels need to be adjusted?

    You look good to go! Keep your FC matched to the level of CYA you have added per chlorine/cya chart in pool school.

    What he said ^^^

    CYA, bleach, swim.

    The CYA just hanging in the sock won't bother anyone, just don't let the kids get too rambunctious with it. It's okay to swim with the sock dangling there.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    My kids quite enjoyed playing with the "diamonds" in the water when I just added salt to my pool. The solar salt works better for this and is cheaper than the pool salt.
