    Pool filling now

    Hi,

    I just got a new pool installed today and the last couple inches of water are filling now. Unfortunately, I live in Canada so I couldn't order a TF-100 test kit, but I ordered a Taylor K-2006 kit that should arrive Monday.

    I read the pool school section of the site and that helped a lot, but I'm a little lost on what chemicals I should be added to get it all started. I can't really check what my levels are until the kit comes in.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    You know the CYA is 0 to start, so use PoolMath and find out how much stabilizer to add to reach 30-40ppm and get it dissolving in a sock.
    Add 2ppm of FC right away and then daily until you have the test kit.

    Welcome!

    What he said ^^^

    If you're unsure how to use poolmath, read the how-to: Pool School - PoolMath

    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!
