Hi. I typically open my own pool but I received a price ($175) with no chemicals from a company and had them do it. They were puzzled when they saw 20 gallons of bleach by my pool and that I wouldn't let them add shock. When I told them why, they were still in disbelief. Anyway, my question is does it make sense to test now and also even run my SWG? I have the aquabot in the pool cleaning the silt, leaves etc (there aren't a ton, which btw thank you for cooler temps since this is the first time we have opened and we could see the bottom) so I was wondering, do I just let the filter run continuously for a day or two, add my bleach (which I have done) and then test a day or two later after a backwash or three? I know I need to add salt since it said when I hooked up the SWG to test it that it is at 2600PPM and needs 100lbs, but then I turned it off as I thought just let the pump run for a night or two and then turn it on. Interested in feedback on the tests and running the SWG now. I suppose I could turn it on and put it on boost also since it will only help in the generation.
Thanks and welcome back from winter!!!!!!!!!!
