I've ordered my test kit (Taylor K-2006), but it won't be here until Friday, 5-15. I took the cover off the pool on Sunday, 5-10, to begin filling, as the previous owner said it would take 10-15 hours to fill back to just above halfway up the skimmer. I should be complete filling the pool either today or tomorrow, so my question is...is there anything I can do/should be doing in the meantime while I wait on my test kit?
I plan on running the pump/filter and cleaning/vacuuming the pool, but aside from that, what can I do? I'm afraid of the FC getting too low and algae beginning to grow since the cover will have been off nearly a week with no additional chemicals.
