I've been reading all of the great information provided on this site, received the TF-100, and have tested my tap water:

CL = 2
T/A - 90
pH - 8.2
CH - 120

I will test again before adding any chemicals. I read advice to another poster who was preparing to treat a fresh fill and was referred to the Beginners Guide for Temporary Pools. I've read this and wanted to verify that in order to swim immediately, I would add bleach to bring the chlorine level up to 6 ppm. In order to add CYA, I can use di-chlor over a 4 day period until my CYA level is 30. From that point on I continue using bleach only. I think I understood that di-chlor will raise my T/A and lower my pH.

I'm trying to assemble my shopping list, and make my plan. Am I on the right track?

Thanks.
