    New pool fill Test Levels Help Please

    We used liquid stabilizer last night, Not sure how long it takes but here are the numbers tonight.

    Haven't added anything yet tonight.

    What order should I add things to finish balancing it out? Thanks!!!

    FC 3
    CC 0
    pH 7.8
    TA 130
    CYA I think about almost 20

    Being refilled Aug 31, 2014 due to needing to move, needing a 68% water change due to CYA, and to add support under legs

    The liquid CYA should register almost immediately. What level were you targeting? I would suggest that you fairly quickly raise the CYA up to 40-50ppm and then just maintain adequate FC and keep the pH in the 7s.

    Give it a bit more time to register, retest and then consider adding more. Something you don't want to overshoot.

    I am not sure there is a need to add anything? What does your water look like?

    Naturally, your FC will need to be replenished constantly. Have you read "The ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry" up in Pool School?
