Great site. In a couple more hours, we will finally be ready to turn our pump on and start filtering our first pool. We've been filling this thing slowly for two weeks now using our well. I've been very worried about filling with our well system but I believe it has done an outstanding job. This part of the country, the cheapest water delivery estimate was $1250. So after two weeks pf patiently filling, now we have just have about three more inches to pump and we hope to be off and swimming. We also ordered the TFT test kit, but had the local pool store test the water for us this morning. I have used the results from them and entered them into the pool calculator and just would like to confirm them with someone before we start shocking this evening.
Total Hardness? (close to CH?): 48
I also entered the Total Hardness value of 48 from the pool store in the column CH. May have thrown the whole thing off.
The suggested dosages per the claculator were: (all totals in volume)
212 oz. chlorine
150 oz. borax
240 oz. baking soda
460 oz. calcium chloride
142 oz. stabilizer
Does this sound right? Thanks for the forum and the help. I'm off to the rental store for a ditch witch and will be back shortly. Have a great day.
