    New pebbletec - first results - how do I look?

    We just had our pool resurfaced with pebbletec and the builder finished their 3 day startup. Please see my taylor test kit results below. What is going on with my chlorine levels? See any other problems here?

    PH 7.4
    FC 5.0
    CC 0 I can't get any to register? (the water never turns back to pink on this step). I tried 3 times.

    Thank you,

    Everything looks good. FC is fine. Don't let it fall below 3. As for the CC you want it to be at 0. That's a good thing.

    Got it! Thanks. Did some more reading here and now understand I should be at 0 on CC.

    Ok, a couple more days in with the new pebble tec and the results are:

    PH 7.6
    FC 3.5
    CC 0
    TA 130
    CH 270

    Do you recommend lowering the PH since I'm reaching the top of the range? Or let it float up a little higher and then address?

    What is the water temperature?

    Are you going to heat the water?

    How are you adding chlorine?
