The water from my tap is reading CH of 100, should I be concerned and have them truck the water in instead? TA is 70 and PH is 7.2. Should I test anything else?

Do you have a plaster or vinyl pool? Please fill in your signature with your pool specs so we can help better.
Duh.... noticed the title. Plaster pool need a CH of 300-350. So you will need extra CH. Those fill water numbers
are quit enviable.

My tap water is: CH 260, TA 160, and PH 7.0. I filled with no issues and followed the new pool startup guidelines. A year later, I still have no issues with CH.

Thanks for the quick replies. I guess I thought pool fill water from a truck would somehow be better balanced but my PB said they pull from the hydrant nearby so it should be the same, just a matter of how fast I want the pool to be filled. They'll balance after it's filled.

I guess I was hoping for magical water from a unicorn water truck to forever thwart off future problems (kidding)
