FILL AND BALANCING

Follow recommended fill and balancing procedures to ensure a successful start-up. Fill pool completely and without interruption with clean, potable water. The use of a filter during fill is strongly recommended.

First Day: Add sequestering agent upon initial fill per manufacturer’s instructions and maintain water circulation for 24 Hours prior to balancing pool chemistry. Adjust pH to 7.2 - 7.4 and total alkalinity to 80 – 120 PPM.

Second Day: Record pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness and temperature levels. Adjust pH to 7.4 - 7.6 and total alkalinity to 80 - 120 PPM. Dissolve all chemicals completely in water before adding to pool, and allow sufficient time for each chemical to be fully dispersed before adding other chemicals. DO NOT ADD CHLORINE OR CALCIUM CHLORIDE. Brush entire surface twice daily for the first three (3) days.

Third Day: Repeat steps from Second Day. Adjust chemistry to the following levels:

Free Chlorine: 1.0 - 3.0 PM
pH: 7.4 - 7.6
Total Alkalinity: 80 - 120 PPM
Calcium Hardness: 200 - 400 PPM
Stabilizer: 30 -60 PPM

Adjust pump timer to normal operating hours.  Do not install automatic pool cleaners for 28 days.  Do not vacuum the pool with a wheeled vacuum for 14 days.  Brush the pool walls and floor daily for the first two (2) weeks.
