We set up our pool and didn't put the salt in it for over a week and it turned into a pretty green swamp. After a week of having the salt in, it is no longer green, but is still cloudy. I added 200lbs. of salt. We have a 20"x52" Intex pool ( I calculated 10300 gal). I have a TF-100 test kit and a salt water test kit. We are on well water.
Here are my numbers:
Chlorine- it stayed clear, so I'm assuming below 0.5
CYA- I could see the dot all the way to the top
Salt- after 20 drops I gave up
This is our first year having a pool with a sand pump and SWG. Thanks for your help!
