We are fixing to finish filling our DIY IG with 22,000 gallons of water and it's Father's Day so Nothings open and we're short a couple of elbows to finish the plumbing to the pump/filter. It will be functioning Monday afternoon.
The question is what should I do in the mean time? We filled 1/2 the water Friday eve. and now the other 1/2 is finishing now. I tested and got these numbers with the T-100 kit i ordered from TFP. We filled with the city hydrant. Should I put any chemicals in there or just leave it? Kids are going to swim in it this eve cause they've been waiting 3 weeks and there's no stopping them.
Chlorine less than .5
CYA 0 (of course)
I know what to add and amounts to add from the pool calculator, but figure since I can't circulate them very much I should prob wait. Will the two fire hoses mix up a gallon or two of bleach enough when they put in the final foot or more of water? What about the CYA? Wait til the skimmer is running and hang the stabilizer in a sock? Have one of my kids drag a filled up sock around the pool with a pole? (They'd like that!!!)
I know someone has asked this question before, but I seach quickly and couldn't find it. We still have to finish backfilling with a wheelbarrow and I don't have time to browse this site.
WATER IN THE POOL....IT's a GREAT Day at our house!!!
