    filling new pool with water need help

    Hi,starting to fill new pool with water tomorrow. tf100 test kit wont arrive until tuesday. Should I just circulate water until kit arrives or add some stabilizer in a sock to start dissolving. Thanks to all in advance for your future help. Can't wait to have a TFP.

    Yep, I'd circulate, add some CYA & a small jug o'bleach (96oz) daily until you can test.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Just to clarify, add the cya once only, and add a jug of bleach daily!
