    TA 320-330
    CH 500? all water blue at 50 drops
    CYA less than 20

    All you need to worry about for now is to get some chlorine in the water - target 3 on poolmath since you have zero CYA. While that's mixing, weigh out enough stabilizer into a sock to get to 40ish and get that started dissolving. At that point, you can let the kids in the chilly water.

    The pH will climb fast with that high TA, so tomorrow you'll probably need to add acid. You won't need to check CYA for a week, because it takes a while to dissolve completely and register on the test.

    This thread is pretty much the same situation you're in: http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...rst-water-test

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
