We've recently built a pool and it's finally finished, but since I'm new to pool ownership I have a question about getting the water chemistry started. Our pool is gunite with medium grey plaster, it's been filled for almost two weeks now. I've brushed it several times a day for the first two weeks, I've maintained the pH between 7.5 and 7.8 with the addition of muratic acid. I've read thru the Pool School information about SWG pool start up but here's where my questions begin. The Builder added salt to our pool after one week but the air temp has been in the 50s and our water temp has been in the 50s also.
Here are my numbers from the TFT water kit I purchased
So since the temps have been low do I wait until the SWG starts producing Cl before I try to adjust the othe numbers?
Also, CYA, when I try the test the mix that I add to the tube is clear and it never gets to a point where I can't see the dot on the bottom of the tube. Does that mean CYA is high or low?
Sorry this is so long, I've spent a lot of time these last few weeks lurking and reading. I appreciate the help and advice.
