    New Intex pool Taylor test results.

    Hi,

    I just got my Taylor test kit and got my first test results. I am looking at opening the pool this weekend or by memorial day Weekend and want the best conditions. Water is nice and clear. Where do I go from here to achieve balance?

    FC - 6
    PH - 7
    TA - 30
    CH - 50
    CYA - 70

    I think I messed up the CC test so I di not get that one.

    Have you discovered Pool School yet? Start with these:
    ABCs of Water Chemistry
    Recommended Pool Chemicals
    How to Chlorinate Your Pool

    And this should help you figure out what to target in PoolMath:
    Recommended Chemistry Levels

    Looks like you just should bump up the TA to 60-70ppm and the pH should come up on its own with the SWG running.

    Ok so it looks like adding 35 oz of baking soda is the next step to bring up the TA. Any tips on best way to do that? I am assuming something like Arm an Hammer baking soda is what I need right?

    The pool chemical link I gave you tells how to add it.
