I had a tree roots vs pool pipes situation. We had to cut out some roots, and ended up rerouting some pipes. In the process we had to do 2 partial drains to get water below wall returns because we didn't know what pipes were what. So basically I am starting over and want to start up right.
We had our first 100º day yesterday so my water temp is already around 78º.
My test today as is follows.
FC - .5
PH - 8
TA - 130
CH - 170
CYA - I really can't get a read because the water is not cloudy once the tube is to the top. (Unlike in the past! LOL)
For kicks I knew I was going to need some stabilizer to start up so I took a sample to Leslie's as I knew they at least test with a Taylor kit.
We pretty much match although they say my CYA is 25
Where do I need to start?
They suggested 1/4 - 1/2 Gal of CYA
and a bag of SHOCK and of course PhosFree. (I am no fool on PhosFree. I know that deal)
I wanna do this right so I am asking for your help. I learned of BBB last year after a "LOCK" (I was running way to many tabs) I vowed to never go down that road again.
Thanks in advance for your help!
