    My first test with TF-100 kit

    I just had a semi-above ground pool installed and filled it almost a week ago. So far I have added just bleach, baking soda, and stabilizer. Here are my test results today. Are there are other tests I should do besides these? How am I doing?

    FC- 2
    PH- 7.5
    CYA- 40
    TA- 120

    I know I need to add more bleach, going to the store later today to stock up. Should I worry about the TA or just leave it?

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Don't fuss with the TA to try to reach a magic number. Watch how your pool pH moves and worry about the TA if the pH moves too much too quick.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Most importantly, how does your water look?

    All good advice above
