Just finished setting up an Intex 18x9x52 pool and filled it 3 days ago. Everything should show in my sig I hope!
Anyways, received my Tf100 test kit yesterday. I added salt the first day (2 40# bags) and ran the filter 24 hours before turning on the SWG. 24 hours later I added the CYA (.7 lbs via digital scale) using the sock over the return jet method. Here are my results so far. I think I'm ok but the CYA doesn't show yet, but its only been 24 hours, but the TA is a bit high.
Water temp 79-80 deg F
Salt test- 2800 ppm (drop method)
CYA- Less than 20, dot disappears when vial is almost full
FC 4.5 with the accurate test, over 5 but below 10 with the daily test
CC. .5 or less Water goes clear instantly without swirling if that matters.
Should I make moves for TA or wait? It's supposed to be very hot today so kids want to use the pool, but the next several days it will probably not be used. Water is crystal clear.
