    First timer - tested my fill water. Does this seem right?

    Hello all. Pool build started Thursday. PB said we may be able to starting filling on Tuesday. I don't see it happening, but I'll be ready one way or another. So I have tested my fill water and obtained the following results:

    FC 1.5
    CC 1
    TC 2.5
    TA 30
    CH 50
    CYA 0
    pH 7.5

    Pool will be 18x36 Sport IG pool with Pentair SWG.

    Yep, that seems about dead on the money. That's good fill water. How do you intend to chlorinate your new pool?

    Pentair Intellichlor Chlorine Generator.
    Should I invest in the Taylor Salt Test Kit?

    Ok. I would purchase enough CYA to get to 60ppm in your pool and put it in (sock method) when the pool is full. It'll be there and waiting once your SWG is operational.

    TA is a little low but I would suggest not doing anything just yet. Test again after the pool is up and circulating and let's see what you get.
