Ok, pool was completed on Saturday and filled with water . Sunday we had a very heavy rain. I added 180oz 6% bleach and used pole/skimmer to mix. PB was here yesterday, hooked up everything, all pumps and SWG going. He added salt, calcium and stabilizer. Completed his Pool School obligation. Gave us a bottle of Aquacheck strips and advised us to have our water checked at the pool store about every month. I just smiled and winked at DH.
First test numbers
Not sure exactly what type of stabilizer he added. It looked like granules mixed with water. He then poured it in the skimmer. Instructed us to keep pump running 24/7 x 7 days. I know my CYA needs to get up to 70-80. Thinking I need to wait for stabilizer to fully dissolve before adding any thing else. Plan to test each day to see if CYA trends up. If it stops trending up, will follow pool calculator recommendations to get to 70. Am I on the right track? Any thing I need to do in the mean time?
