We just purchased an Intex 15 ft by 4 ft above ground pool and added the water. This am I put in one pound (yes.... one pound bag for treating 12,000 gallons, sigh!) of Aqua Chem Shocks Water Clear (Shock Xtra Blue). The Aqua Chem test strips (came in a "start up kit" that my hubby got) are 2-way test strips, testing for FC and pH. Right now, the pH is ok, but the FC is very purple....very high. Water is clean and clear, no odor. It's an Intex 15x4 above ground pool, approx 4440 gals; cartridge pump (size A). I have not tested anything else &
live in Northern KY. It's a cloudy day today; supposed to rain & be cloudy & upper 70's next few days
Suggestions? Other than the obvious - get a better test kit, LOL!
Safe to swim?
