Hey guys. Need some help. First time opening this way.

We have had tons of rain in the last month and I had to drain a ton of water to get the safety tarp water free so have added a lot of new water. Here are my numbers.
pH - 7.2
Cl - 0
CH - 50
TA - 60
CYA - 0 (was 50 at closing)

What to do please? Thanks.

Use PoolMath to guide you in how much stabilizer (CYA) to add, and get some bleach in there PRONTO or you're going to be looking at green instead of clean.

You can get both at Walmart.....or the CYA at Lowes and the bleach at any grocery store. Just make sure the bleach is fresh and high quality. None of this cheapo 3% stuff, or old bleach from Lowes please (they store it outside where it weakens).

Thanks Maddie!

Did I forget to mention that my spider valve is shot so when I run the pump, I am losing water out of the drain hose.

I put in bleach (10%) and will run the pump for an hour tonight to circulate then shut off.

Oh lordie Rocket.... if it isn't one thing its another sometimes, huh?

Spider gasket repairs are pretty easy. Youtube has videos on how to perform the trade out.
