    Drained pool and think I am on track

    I finally got my pool drained since my CY was off the charts............pool is now filled and added a small amount of stablizer and liquid chlorine..........

    my water measurements are

    FC-6
    CC-0
    PH-7.8
    TA-140
    CH-230
    CY-25


    The calculator says to add 9.6 oz of muratic acid and 24 oz more of stablizer........water is clear as a bell.........I am only leary of more stabilizer since that is what caused the initial problem and required the pool drain 200+..........aside from that I think everything looks pretty good........also I am not worried about the CH since we have very hard water here in Phoenix.....once again thanks for your help

    How much did you drain? When did you add the stabilizer? How much stabilizer did you add? Was it granules or liquid?

    No really hurry to lower your pH too much since your CH is lower right now.

    The whole pool.........added 3lb granules along with Chlorine yesterday at around 4pm and ran the pump at a high speed (not variable speed) all night for 15 hours and today running at variable speed.

    Well, then your CYA should have started close to 0. How did you add the stabilizer? Remember that it takes up to a week for the granules to fully dissolve and show up on the test. So, trust the PoolMath for how much you added which should have been ~30ppm.

    Being in PHX, you will likely want the CYA to be a little closer to 50ppm in the summer, although might not need it that high any more this season ... up to you.

    Re: Drained pool and think I am on track

    I will test it again the middle of next week which will be almost a week, since it may take that long to fully dissolve and do what the pool math says at that point. One last question, being in Phoenix how often should I be testing the water (Fall, Winter, Spring) versus (Summer)........since I am done with the pool store and tablets accept for parts and supplys and well acid too. Thanks again for this forum and you experts.

    Test chlorine and pH daily. Others not as often. See suggested schedule in Pool School.
