Prior to plaster day

#1 – Test the tap water (fill water) at the site. Test for pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, phosphates, free chlorine and metals. If water is municipally sourced, you can request in-depth water test results from the water treatment bureau.

#2 – Input the test results into the Orenda LSI calculator.

#3 – Use the Orenda Calculator to establish balanced parameters to reach for startup. Get Dosage and email results through the app.

#4 – Purchase necessary calcium and bicarbonate to have on site for fill up day.

Day 1

#1 – Add 1 Quart of SC-1000 to Main Drain prior to fill, or wait until a few inches of water are in the bowl to pour in entire ‘purge’ dose.

#2 – Adjust PH, Alkalinity & Calcium to ideal LSI range (PH-7.4-7.6, Alk-80-120, Cal-200-400)

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

Day 2

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

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

Day 3 – Day 5

#1 – Add Chlorine – no more than 3-5 ppm*

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

#2 – Continue to make adjustments to PH, Alkalinity & Calcium

#3 – Add 1 Quart of CV 700 or CV 600

#4 – Brush, Vacuum (not a wheeled vacuum) & Run Pool LSI – Strive for a range between -0.3 & + 0.3

Week 2 – Week 4

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

#2 – Add 4-5 ounces of CV 700 or CV 600, adjusting amount for higher bather load and continue weekly maintenance

#3 – Add 3 ounces of SC 1000, for continued Metal & Scale Protection and continue weekly maintenance

30 Days +

#1 – Check phosphates and treat with PR 10000, no more than 8 ounces per 10,000 gallons.  Clean filter as needed, (watch pressure).  Continue to treat weekly until phosphates are below 200ppb.  Start pool on weekly maintenance of 1-2 ounces of PR 10000 (optional), or check for phosphates quarterly, more often if needed

#2 – CV 700 or CV 600 along with SC 1000 should be added weekly for optimum water quality.

#3 – Add Stabilizer – 30-50 ppm maximum
