    New to BBB...look out bleach isle I'm comin'

    Just got my TF test kit. Here's my first set of numbers..

    FC- 5
    TA - 90
    CH -150
    CYA 50-60 (first two readings)
    pH- 7.2

    Per pool school, based on the CC I need to be in shock process so per the calculator I am off to get some bleach. Based on the guide I think I'm fine not adjusting the pH until after process is over and all others are pretty much in line although CYA may be a little on high side.

    Any other recommendations getting started? Does it make sense to do overnight chlorine loss test in day 1?

    When the water is clear and you're getting .5 or less CC, then worry about the overnight test.

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
