Hi guys. My pool is filling as we speak. I have a 21' AGP --steel. I am going to be using a SWG--someone here recommended I get a TF100 test kit but that would take a bit to get to me and I need to get the pool to the proper levels now. (or by wed or thursday, whenever its done filling. )
Are there any test kits to buy cheap for now, just to get started ?
Also,The pool installer wanted 175.00 to install my Intex SWG--I told him I would do it myself as that seemed excessive. I am not sure if he has the filter and pump running ( I am not home) but I would imagine if the pool is being filled it would be running. Or does the pool have to be a certain level before you run the pump ?
Anyhow---can I just shut off the pump and install the SWG ? Sorry if these are noob questions. This is all new to me. Is there a link to opening a new pool for the very first time ? I noticed in pool school there is a link for opening a winterized AGP but not a new pool for the first time.
