    Few questions before first SLAM

    Using a TF 100 kit here are my results
    FC 0
    CC .5
    CH 150
    TA 60
    CYA 20
    PH 7.2

    I know I need to get my CYA up before I begin and from what I've read, the Ph seems ok to start. My question is, do I need to adjust the CH and TA before beginning? Our pool right now is very cloudy, can see maybe a foot down.

    CH Is fine, leave the TA for now, but get some fc in there asap

    You may want to go ahead and add enough CYA to get to 30.

    Other than that Everything looks good.

    Your ready to slam.

    Go ahead and start pouring bleach. Between the first and second doses, you'll have time to fumble around with the CYA and the sock. It will be a pleasant respite from brushing.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
