Ok just opened pool..water is crystal clear..topped up and has been circulating for about 12 hours or so--
Just did some tests with my TF-100 kit
CYA -0 (I plan to add to get to 40)
Based on the chart for CYA I need to get my FC up to 16 to shock to get rid of the CC- and then maintain FC at a 5
The questions are these-
Normal at my openings I have at least some CYA in the pool, not sure why I don't have any this time unless the water is to cold to test- Do I need to let my sample water get to room temp? It is probably in the low 60F or so?
Can I go ahead and get some Bleach in the pool to start circulating or do I need to wait till the CYA has had time to circulate- It is my understanding that once I add I might need to wait a couple of days to get a more accurate reading once added?
Not sure what steps to take know. Add CYA based on chart dosage and go ahead and shock or just add CYA and wait to shock?
