With the expert advise of you all I have the motor started but in last few weeks, (after filling in fresh water and no motor to circulate the water I added chlorine and brushed it twice a day)just yesterday the pool guy came to finally get the motor and pipe connected but also poured 2 gals of 8.25% chlorine in the skimmer. There was slight algae formation near the steps. Also in the skimmer (which I missed to check for so many days) were some mosquito larva swimming. The pool guy had given me two bottles of pool water test , one to test the chlorine water and the other ph level.. As per the reading on that today both of them are high. I was reading other posts and found that its obvious to have high pH at this stage.
Now I need help from you all. I am ordering TF-100 test kit right now(as soon as I finish this post) I think it will take couple of days to arrive. Till then what should I do? I dint want to take the water sample to the pool store guy as one of you had suggest against it. Kindly help here I think we have just few more weeks of summer and I wanted my kids to have fun in it.
Also I have been running the motor (just had turned it off for couple of hrs)..
