I made my first water test this week. The water was at 60 degrees. I have a saltwater pool.
Salt 1350 ppm - I triple checked this test with the Aqua Test strips and the Taylor drop. Rechecked at room temp too.
Total Chlorine 0
TA 10 ppm
CH 20 ppm
My tap water has 90 ppm for CH
My cover is still on and I have not turned on the pump yet.
The pool calculator says I need 350 pounds of salt and 12 pounds of CYA. I just purchased these. I'm thinking I will start the pump this weekend and get the salt level up to target add the CYA and fire up the SWCG. When the chlorine gets to target, I will start adding the other chemicals. Currently, the water is cloudy but not green.
Any advice or tips? This is a 2 year old pool but is my first season with it.
