    Opened pool and any suggestions on what to add and sequence would be helpful

    Just returned to our summer home and need to get the pool in order.

    Using TFT test kit following are pool readings.

    Phosphates over 10000 ppb
    Calcium Hardness 100 ppm
    Total Alk 40
    CYA 40
    FC 10 coming down as pool was slammed due to huge pollen load
    CC 0
    TC 10
    Salt 1600 SWG not turned on yet
    PH 6.6

    Pool is vinyl

    I looked at the pool calculator and get a bit confused as some things effect others.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks,

    Garthrob

    As soon as the FC level is below 10, I would raise the PH to at least 7.2. Once the PH is more reasonable, test the TA again and then adjust it as needed.

    You can add salt any time. Leave the pump running for 24 hours after adding salt.

    CH at 100 is fine if you have a vinyl pool, but should be raised soon if you have a plaster/gunite/pebble/quartz pool.
