Fill on Thursday, startup from PB on Saturday. Used the TF kit just now, results are:
FC 0.8
pH 7.9
TA 140
CH 450
CYA 48

Pool startup guy said he added enough chemicals to get us through to our orientation on Friday evening.

Thoughts? Appreciate all the help thus far!

Chlorine will need to be added daily. I suspect lowering the pH will need to be done daily also as the plaster is new.

You are already too low on chlorine so your pool guy may have put some pucks in but you sure need to add more chlorine ASAP. You should be up around 4-6 ppm FC.

Report CYA to the nearest 10's. (30, 60, etc.) So your test result for CYA is 50 ppm.
