    How long to test the water....

    How long should I wait for somewhat accurate testing (it's a strip) after I've put in some acid (in the early AM) and then chlorine (at 12 noon)? I've had the pumps going all day and the Phantom going as well to circulate.
    My Pool - 18x24 fully setup Cabana, 22x48 gunite/quartz plaster (3-5-3 depth) & 8' spa w/ spill and 5' natural rock waterfall; Hayward DE filter/pumps/heater; Hayward Pro Logic controller; Phantom cleaner. Finished 06/01/07.

    couple hours ought to be plenty long enough.

    8000 gallon 20' x 48" round vinyl frame pool, 12" sand filter (don't have the specs on the pump), TF100 test kit

    "Shock" is a process, not a product!
