I'm a first time pool owner. Just got 30' AGP installed yesterday. Starting filling with waterhoses using city water. My problem is that my pool holds 22,000 gal. of water and I have been filling with hoses for 24hrs now and water depth in pool is only 1 ft. Looks like it will take 4 days for pool to fill. I plan on using the BBB method for treating. What do I need to be doing now. Will water be in horrible shape in the 4 days it takes to fill up to where I can start using the sand filter? Have a Taylor K2006 test kit. I tested my tap water and it has a FC content of 1.2 and CC of .1.
We just got an inch of rain this morning and I'm really concerned about what to do. I will test the pool water and let you know the results of the existing water in the pool.
The pool store gave me some "Algae Kill" and told me to add it immediately. It has active ingredients of 7.1% of "Copper as Elemental". Is this bad? I think I read where is was ok to us a "poly-quat" for and algae control if absolute necessary.
The pool stroe gave me some "Algaecide 60". The ingredients are "Poly (oxyethylene (dimethylominio) ethylene (Dimethyliminio)-ethylene dichloride........................60%. Is this the polyquat I was reaking about.
I'm trying to learn about this pool stuff quickly by reading this site but it is a lot of info to process. I would greatly appreciate any help you guys could give me.
Great site I may add!!
