    New 22' x 52' ultra frame....HELP!

    Please help followed all the instructions for our SWG and still no chlorine. We setup our pool 7/14/13. We added the 260 lbs. of salt, 3 lbs of CYA and ran the filter for 24 hrs. After 24 hrs we tested our salt which was 2,660 ppm and started the ozone & SWG for 7 hrs. This morning I tested my water and these are my results:

    TH 100
    FC 0
    pH 7.8
    TA 180
    CYA 30-50

    We have been having rain everyday since we started filling the pool and more rain is expected Here are my questions?
    Can I shock the pool with this system? I already have some 1 lb bags of super shock and swim. Or should I add more salt to bring my salt up and run the ozone SWG? If I do this my manual says once salt is added the filter needs to be run 24 hrs before I can operate the ozone & SWG.

    Welcome to TFP.

    Have you added any form of chlorine? If not you can add a bag of the cal-hypo now.

    I would add a bag of salt and leave the swg off until tomorrow.

    No just the salt and CYA, What is cal hypo? I have the HTH shock n swim can I add that, run my filter then this evening set my ozone saltwater system to boost?

    The "Shock N Swim" is cal-hypo. Add that.
    How much CYA have you added?

    I wouldn't set it to boost. There's no need for it.

    You would do yourself a big favor by getting a good test kit and reading Pool School.
