We have a 10,000 AG Pool. We filled it with mostly well water (I don't know if this matters?). We have a 1.5Hp Hayward XStream Pump & Filter; and an Intex Krystal Clear SWCG. We used this pool last year - but never successfully; meaning we were constantly fighting algae (we upgraded our pump to combat some of our issues). We dumped 7 bags (40lb each) of salt into the pool 2 days ago; and started the SWCG - maybe we shouldn't have done that? We added two bags of shock (recommended by the pool place.) We also added 1lb of CYA yesterday... but most of it wasn't dissolved, so today we spread it in the water. We started with very green water; we turned toward lighter green and cloudy - but today, it seemed to turn green again. We bought the test kit from Leslie's pool center and started testing it this evening. It doesn't show any salt? Is that right, and we have very little (like barely showing up) FC. We didn't test the CYA because I've read on here that it can take days for that to show up.
Are we just being too impatient, or what are we doing wrong? We were totally amazed that there is showing no salt when we tested it? Please help us! I've read all the posts, but I just can't quite figure out where to begin!
