First off I know I should get a better testing kit but for the moment I only have a Aqua Chem 3 kit.
I have an intex 16' x 48" pool with SWG.
First : What should my Chlorine level be ?
Second : Is my test kit measuring free chlorine or chlorine ?
My pH shows on target with the tester and so does my chlorine.I just want to make sure there is no safety issue because my kids are swimming in it now.I have read through pool school and it seems there not much I can do until I get a better test kit. The water looks clear.I filled the pool ( new pool ) on saturday night.Added 125 lbs of salt ( recommended in manual ) ran pump 24 hours then ran SWG for 5 hours. I set it to run 4 hours last night and this afternoon by my tester I was still in spec by my little test kit.
Any help will be appreciated. I guess my main question is if the water looks clear and it shows in range on my tester is it ok to use the pool ?
Thanks in advance !
