New swg pool installed...after week and a half got aquachek7 test strips out to do some testing. I know...I know...I need the better test kits. But right now, this is all I have to work with.
I was shocked when I say 0 FC and 0 TC. Asked PB if put stabilizer in. He said no. Calculated how much I needed on pool calculator. On Sat. I added 64oz (granules) (105oz was recommended) but I wanted to start out slow. Nothing else has been added to pool.
Also Sat.7am I pushed "boost" on swg which takes it to 100% purifying.
Did test strip test at 1pm:
By 8pm TC was 10 and FC 5 (as accurate as strips can be I guess). I decided to turn off boost and leave swg at 70% overnight.
By 2pm Sun. TC and FC were both 10. I turned back swg at the default 50% setting.
Monday my TC and FC are at highest color on strip.
TC 10 (highest on strip)
FC 20 (highest on strip)
CYA 30-50 range
Levels still the same today. No swimmers since a week ago. Solar cover on. Been upper 60 temps. Today sunny and 80 and 7am I turned swg down to 5% and no drop when tested at 5pm.
No algae noticed. Water clear.
