My pool was completed and water added over just two weeks ago. I got my test kit on Friday and have been testing, adjusting and learning since. My pH was through the roof, but I have since got it under control. However, my FC is still really low. Here are my results from this morning:
pH 7.5 (brought down from 8.4 on Friday)
CYA 45 (brought up from 20 yesterday)
This will be a salt water pool, but we are not putting the salt in the pool until this coming Friday.
Per pool math, I need to 149 oz of bleach to raise my FC and stabilizer to increase my CYA.
1. Will the 149 oz of bleach reduce the CC?
2. I know my CYA needs to be 70-80 for a salt water pool, however, we haven't added salt yet. Knowing we will be adding salt on Friday, how much liquid sanitizer should I add? Pool math shows 208 oz of liquid sanitizer.
3. Anything I am missing?
Thanks in advance for your help!
