Good morning, I've been doing tons of reading on this site since Tuesday, when we were asked to help take care of a swampy pool that we are trying to get back in shape. I've ordered the TF-100 test kit and am waiting on it to arrive. I was hoping to have it by the weekend, but don't yet. I still have some of the Aquacheck test strips and those are the results I'm posting below
I know that I badly need to add chlorine, but I don't know whether I should start the shock process without the test kit or not. My strips only read up to 10 FC. I've already purchased enough jugs of chlorine bleach to get started, just waiting to get started.
The sand filter is running 24/7 and we are backwashing as needed, using leaf rake and brush.
Thanks for advice!
