    Just filled the pool What do I buy now to get my levels right?

    We just filled our pool after installing a new liner. I bought the Taylor testing kit and tested the water today. This is what I have for my readings.

    200 ppm alkalinity
    FC-0
    Chlorine-0
    PH- 7.6
    CH-40 PPM
    CYA- black dot didn't disappear

    What do I need to buy now to get my levels where they need to be? I have an above ground 29000 gallon above ground pool. No saltwater. My pool is 33 ft round and 54 inches deep. I don't know anything about the levels so I don't know if the alkalinity and the Ph are right or not. I know the CUA and chlorine isn't right.

    I did put three chlorine tablets into my skimmer basket today to get some chlorine in there while we were running the pump.
    I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you!!

    That'll get ya' started. Along with this,

    You have zero CYA. Those tabs will add some, albeit slowly. Get a 4lb. jug of stabilizer/conditioner from Walmart. I recommend plain old bleach to keep FC in your pool.
