    Just Refilled Pool

    I am new to pool care. I just refilled my 30000 gal pool. I used K-Taylor 2006 Complete Test Kit. I am a little unsure about my results, but here they are:
    FC 15 PPM
    CC 4 PPM
    pH 7.3
    TA 80 PPM
    CH 100 PPM
    CYA 65
    I ran PoolMath and got some incredible amounts of chemicals to add.
    I am also interested Borate.
    What do do I do now?

    Really only 1 number is out of whack....the CC's. Tell us what your water looks like?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Did you add any chemicals after filling?

    How old is your test kit?

    Leave borates until you have everything else adjusted just right.

    Second Rest

    My second test readings: fc 9.4, cc 0, pH 7.4, TA 80, CH 100, CYA 110. Pool Math calls for: 141 oz baking soda and 711 oz CaCl. Can this be real?

    Note that PoolMath doesn't tell you what to do, it tells you how to do something that you decide you want to do. Most likely you have some inappropriate numbers in the Target column, resulting in partially inappropriate output.

    The big issue here is the CYA reading. Do you have any idea why the CYA reading went up so much? If you feel confident in the CYA reading, you will need to replace water to get CYA down to something more reasonable. But such a large change from your first reading seems unlikely.

    TA is fine where it is (unless you use trichlor tablets).

    You do need to raise CH, but put that off until everything else is more under control.

    I use 2: 3 inch Trichloro-s-triazinetrione, 99% tablets in skimmer. Should I use liquid chlorine (Colorox) instead?
