I have had my pool up for 10 days and just turned the filter on 2 days ago. Wasnt sure it was safe or not without having the electrical
turned on but apparently its ok temporarily as long as its plugged in to GFCI outlet.
My FC was at 0 yesterday. I added appoximately 44 ounces of bleach. Tested today with TF100 kit (the simple test) and chlorine was up between .5 and 1.
I added another 30 oz of bleach---I also purchase some dicholor powder. (2 single packs)
I took my water to the pool store to analyze being I was there anyway. They said my CYA is at 10 PPM and my FC was at .2.
I will test my CYA and FC again before shocking.
Looking at the CYA/FC table, it says I would have to get my FC up to 20 before I could add the Dicholor to get my CYA up to 50 ? Is that accurate ?
Or do I just add the Dicholor and see what it does to my FC/CYSA levels ?
Sorry if these are dumb questions, its all new to me. I do have the TF100 kit so I guess I am in good shape there. Everywhere else, not so much. :/
