    Took first plunge

    Had pool re-plastered just over 2 weeks ago and now that all dust has cleared (with lots of sweeping) and water chemistry is balanced with super clear water I decided to try it out after doing yard work yesterday in 89 degree temp here in Dallas. Water temp was still little cool at 80 degrees but it sure was refreshing. Grand kids will enjoy it this weekend.

    FC-4.2
    PH-7.5
    CH-220
    TA-105
    CYA-40
    PHOS-0
    TEMP-80

    LSI= -0.1
    CSI= -0.04

    Welcome to the forum Rick! Hope it's a great summer for you and your Grandkids.

    I'm curious, why/how would they list the CSI number with no CH reading.

    Ok, I sure recommend getting your own kit to protect your investment. Just a friendly suggestion.

    Nevermind, I missed your sig line...sorry.

    I saw the phos and just assumed. Oops
