Well last night after about 24 hours, the pool was finally full. I was able to obtain readings on my water meter to get to an estimated 12,500 - 13,000 gallons (depending on how long of a shower the wife took yesterday).
I am waiting on the PB to come over and turn on the system. I have tested my fill water this morning and have the following results:
ph - 7.5
FC - .5
CC - .5
TC - 1
TA - 220
CH - 70
CYA - 0
The salt system has not yet been cranked up - and according to the start-up card, I should wait a minimum of 28 days before starting the SWCG. If I follow the start-up card correctly, day 3 I should start chlorinating - I'll use bleach until I get the SWCG up.
I would appreciate any thoughts/comments and thanks.
