Just finished our build...50x20 in-ground saltwater with hayward swcg..
I have been ravenously reading here at TFP about how to care for my pool myself. I figure that if I do decide to farm out the maintenance I need to be able to at least check behind whoever is doing it. Towards that end I have ordered a TF100 test kit. In the meantime, all I have is aquachek 7 strips given to me by the pool builder with which to monitor the pool with. With these strips I am consistently reading very low (0.5 ppm) FC. Everything else is testing normal.
Question is....how much stock should I put in this FC reading? Should I wait until Wednesday when my kit arrives to test and decide to add bleach? Or am I risking trouble between now and then? I contacted the builder and he said to run super chlorinate cycle for 24 hrs and report back on the FC level...
Sorry for the rambling post but this is my first pool.
