    Pool chemistry

    Hello all! I have finally taken the cover off of the pool for the summer although the deck is still under construction Water look great numbers are: FC 1.5, CC 0, TA 50, Ch 100 Ph 7.5, BR 2 @ 78degrees. My results from calculator are, 75 oz of 10% bleach, 282 oz of baking soda, 596 oz of calcium chloride and 48 oz of stabilizer. The quantities of baking soda calcium chloride seem large based on no real knowledge . Do I really need to address Ch? Any input is very appreciated.

    Your CH is fine, vinyl pools don't need much CH, our guidlines here is 50ppm+ also you don't list your current CYA level so we can't say how much stabilizer you need, and you should probably hold off on adjusting TA until you get everything else in line

    Are you testing CYA under the correct lighting conditions? (outdoors, sun to your back)

    Is my pool safe to swim in right now, as it is?

    Re: Pool chemistry

    Your FC is a little low so you need to bump it up with bleach see pool-school/chlorine_cya_chart_shock
    but otherwise if it is clear you should be good based on those numbers
