I am new to the forum. I have read the pool school pages. I have ordered the TF-100 test kit. I am so new I have not even figured out how to put my info in to my signature.
I just put up a 16’ x 48” Intex Ultra metal pool (5061 gal) with 1500 gpm cartridge filter and SWG. Located in Northern California
The pool was filled Monday from a well.
I added 120lbs of salt per Intex setup recommendations.
Now here is my questions. I ordered CYA but it will not be here until tomorrow? I am going to put in 1.3 lbs per intex recommendations. Can I wait this long or should I buy some on the way home from work?
Since my test kit will not be here for a week I took a pool sample to Leslies.
FAC LOW 0
TAC LOW 0
SALT OK 2700
CH LOW 80
CYA LOW 20
TA OK 90
pH OK 7.6
Copper ok 0
Iron OK 0
PHasphates OK 0
They recommend 10lbs 10oz of harness plus Calcium Hardness
Manual dosing, to add 3 oz of their Chlor Brite (Dichlor-S-Trianzinetrione). Isn’t the salt and SWG doing my sanitizing? Do they want me to add this just to get my FAC’s up?
One gal of Instant pool water conditioner to increase CYA.
Should I follow their recommendations and then take ownership of my chemicals when my test kit gets here or since I have salt and CYA in the pool can I wait a week?
