It's been 11 years since I've balanced new pool water but we just installed a new pool liner and refilled the pool. Please refresh my memory on what order I should add the products in order to balance properly.

Get a baseline of your fill water pH, CH, and TA.
Add chlorine to 3 ppm FC.
Start dissolving 30 ppm worth of CYA using the sock method.
Test pH and adjust into the 7's.
Follow the FC/CYA Chart

Thank you! Exactly what I needed. Just one more thing. With a vinyl liner, I've never paid much attention to CH. I've seen differing views of that at TFP.

Low CH is of no consequence to you as you do not have a heater. As you have not entered your Location, I was not sure if you may have high CH fill water.
