I just had a 15x30 oval pool installed and I filled it with city hose water.
I bought one of those rubber ducky chlorine floaters, I bought a 40lb pal of pucks from Costco. I put in 6 pucks and set the feeder to 15,000 gallons. Depending on which pool calc I use they say the pool is 10-13k gallons. So I just set it to 15k for now, I can back it down to 10k if needed.
After 24 hours when I test the water, the chlorine level is still showing zero, as in matching the color to the color char the chlorine is clear as day (no color). The PH seems to be spot on according to the color chart.
Should I be shocking the pool from the get go? Just wait several days for the feeder to bring up the chlorine level?
I am a complete newbie when it comes to this stuff.
