So, Filled up new pool, builder sends out their start up guy, who really appeared to be winging it. My TF100 is on order, but they gave me test strips. They dumped eight 40lb bags of salt in, turned on pump, added DE, gave me a quick course on the pump functions, and left. After running the pump for 10 hours straight, the pool looks crystal clear, I used the test strips and came up with the following:
Total Akalinity-80-100 (ok)
Unfortunately, until my kit comes in, I am unsure if I have enough salt which I assume is necessary for the generator to convert it to chlorine or if other levels are good. In the meantime, do I shock it to get chlorine up? Any advise would be helpful. Thanks.
