POOL START-UP PROCEDURES

RENOVATION/NEW CONSTRUCTION & DRAINING

Procedure based on 10,000 gallons

 

Procedure for existing pools to be drained & refilled –

         Day 1

#1 – Add 1 Quart of SC-1000 to pool after bowl has water in it.

#2 – Adjust all chemicals to ideal range. Add Chlorine to no  higher than 5ppm*

* 1 gallon of Liquid Chlorine will raise chlorine level to 10ppm

#3 – Add 1 Quart of CV-700 or CV-600 after pool is full

 

         Week 2

#1 – Test phosphates and treat with PR-10,000.  No more than 8 ounces.  Clean filter as needed (watch pressure).

#2 – Add 4-5 ounces of CV-700 or CV-600

#3 – Adjust all chemicals to ideal range, no more than 5ppm chlorine.  Add tabs if needed, be careful not to allow stabilizer to rise higher than 30 ppm.

 

         Week 3 +++

#1 – Retest phosphates and re-add PR-10,000 at no more than 8 ounces.  Clean filter as needed (watch pressure). Continue this weekly treatment until phosphates are below 100 ppb.

#2 – Add 4-5 ounces of CV-700 or CV-600 weekly, adjusting  amount weekly to account for heavier organic loading

#3 – Once phosphates are below 100ppb add PR-10,000 weekly at 1-2 ounces

#4 – Retest phosphates quarterly and adjust maintenance dose accordingly

#5 – Adjust all chemicals to ideal range weekly

 

Procedure for renovation/new construction –

         Day 1

#1 – Add 1 Quart of SC-1000 to pool after bowl has water in it

#2 – Adjust PH, Alkalinity & Calcium to ideal range on the LSI

#3 – Brush, Vacuum (not a wheeled vacuum) & Run Pool

 

         Day 2

#1 – Adjust PH, Alkalinity & Calcium to ideal range on the LSI

#2 – Brush, Vacuum (not a wheeled vacuum) & Run Pool

 

         Day 3

#1 – Add Chlorine – no more than 5ppm*

             *1 gallon of Liquid Chlorine will raise chlorine level to 10ppm

#2 – Add Tabs (Feeder/Floater), be careful with stabilized tabs

#3 – Add Stabilizer – no more than 30 ppm

#4 – Make minor final adjustments to PH, Alkalinity & Calcium

#5 – Add 1 Quart of CV-700 or CV-600

#6 – Brush, Vacuum (not a wheeled vacuum) & Run Pool

 

         Week 2 +++

#1 – Normal Maintenance – Adjust all chemicals to ideal range

#2 – Check phosphates and treat with PR-10,000, no more than 8 ounces per 10,000 gallons.  Clean filter as needed, (watch pressure).  Continue to treat weekly until phosphates are below 100ppb.  Start pool on weekly maintenance of 1-2 ounces of PR-10,000

#3 – Add 4-5 ounces of CV-700 or CV-600, adjusting amountweekly to account for heavier organic loading
