Just filled and installed a new 16 x 4 AG coleman vinyl pool.......roughly 5700 gallons. Cartridge filter and 1500 gph pump.
Any way, I have a floating chlorine DUAL ACTION puck in the pool currently (roughly 28 hours in pool so far).
I have no "good" test kit until I order one and get it on weekend. SO I have bought the HTH 6 way test strips and a cheap PH/CL vial type tester.
I have just tested my water:
Strips say: FAC:0, TCI:0, ALK:40, PH 6.8, TH 100, CYA 0.
VIALS SAY: PH 7.6, CL <0.2.
I HAVE A JUG OF 10.3% bleach AND I just bought a container of CYA granules.
WHAT CAN I DO immediately so that the kids can swim in 4 hours?????
