I had my new pool installed a couple of months ago. I have been reading this site for about a month. So, I am really learning some GREAT stuff. Anyway, I ordered the Taylor K-2006 test kit. I tested the water Friday. Here are the readings:
CYA Did not turn cloudy (0)
Ca Hardness 100
Okay, from what I have read here and from using the pool calculator, I have decided to hit the CYA and pH levels first. According to the Pool Calculator, I should add 170 oz of CYA to get to 70. Being a new pool, I don't doubt the CYA being 0. But, instead of adding 170 oz, I added approximately 90 oz, I am running my pump all night and will check the CYA levels next weekend. I figure this will help with CYA, pH and FC. Then, after testing next week, look to adjust other items. I am basically asking, if this is the right approach at this time?
Thank you for any response and information.
