Hey all, just wanted to introduce myself as a new member here at TFPC and also get a little initial advice. My name is Cory and my wife and I just had an AGP installed on Tuesday of last week. It's an 18' Outback Southport (7,180 gal). I also added some initial info to my signature. We're in Greenville, SC and our pool was filled good ol' city water right out of the hose pipe.
We're first time pool owners, so we are certainly learning as we go with the help of this forum and other online resources. Pool School has been a major help!!!!
Immediately after install we started filling it up and I've been running the filter system for about 8 hours a day so far with no chemicals of any kind added. We're also in the process of building a deck and doing some other work in the backyard. We may not swim in this pool for another month or so, but I have to imagine it's not wise to let the pool go long without any chemicals in it.
Soooo....I ordered my TF-100 test kit today but what should I be doing right now to get out front of any potential issues? I want to get off on the right foot (and probably need my test kit to really do that), but should I go ahead and start with some initial treating right now?
This is 7th day the pool has been installed and we've had 2 back-to-back days of some serious rain/thunderstorms in our area. Looking forward to learning much more here from you guys!!
