Our pool was recently re-plastered. It has only had water in it for two weeks and a day now. The company that did the work sent a tech out to do the chemical startup and a couple of times and I haven't touched it since other than to test the water and brush the plaster. The last time the tech was here was last Tuesday (8 days ago). I have been keeping an eye on the chlorine level of the pool using my simple OTO kit and the levels appear to be INCREDIBLY high (the test sample turns a blood orange instead of yellow, so I can't even use the OTO to accurately test the amount of chlorine) - so I used my FAS-DPD kit today and I got to 40 drops of the R-0871 using the .5 ppm per drop test (10 ml sample) and stopped. Sample was still dark pink and didn't appear to want to change color anytime soon, so I know that my FC is over 20 ppm, which I think is way overkill, especially for a pool that hasn't had any chemicals added since last week. I decided to go ahead and call the pool company and ask if they'd be willing to check - they said the level obviously is way too high so they're sending someone out tomorrow to check. I'm concerned that they're going to attempt to use some sort of chlorine neutralizing chemical that may cause havoc with my water balance in the future - I'd like some advice on what I might want to ask and what I might want to AVOID (if they recommend/attempt a certain course of action) - any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
