17,000 gallon pool, just finished the shock process with bleach to kill off an algae issue (green pool). The water as of this morning is clear and all signs of algae have been vacuumed out to waste. I have ordered the TF-100 Test Kit with salt strips but it may not be here until next week. I would like to start adding some salt now, but I'm not sure what my current salt levels are. Will the salt readings from the Intellichlor get me started or should I wait until I get the test kit? I have 280 lbs of Solar salt to start off, but I didn't plan on using all of that at first.
The pool did have some water left in it during the winter, but I also vacuumed to waste 3-4 times to clear the algae issue.
Thank you all for the help!
