    lap pool

    My brother has taken the plunge.
    He has purchased a 5000 gallon lap pool.
    It has a UV system.
    It is working and sitting inside his garage.
    He is brand new to pool ownership.
    After filling he has already come across his first issue.
    He is losing 2ppm of fc overnight.
    Ph - 7.4
    Alkalinity 100
    Calcium 50
    Cya 0
    Fc 0 (now)
    Cc 1
    I have shared this site and a ton of information from
    It.
    I would suggest he brush and slam to 10ppm, to kill
    Whatever may be in his brand new water.
    With his cya at 0 and indoors I figured 10 ppm of fc
    Would be high enough.
    He will eventually add borates too, but he wants to
    Face this hurdle first.
    Any suggestions for him.

    thanks,
    PF

    Have him join TFP and read Pool School for himself so he can grasp the info provided to him and not have to depend on you to fix everything. What if you're not available? It's an honest question.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
