So our pool was filled Sunday.
I backwashed, rinsed and then filtered.
Immediately got chlorine in pool.
Hung the sock with CYA
Said add 3 lbs for my pool 13000 gallon, I added in 2 rounds
I have kept a close eye testing and here's what I got.
Day 1 1:30p
Day 1 5:00 pm
Tested throughout day 6:30am- 8:02 pm
8.4 to 4.6 before bed
Day 3 7:54 am
CYA maybe 20 I can see black dot lightly filled to top
CYA same maybe 20
Took sample to pool store. They said my readings were
she said go home add 4 lbs of stabilizer. I was like um no I know it's not 0. Black dot is barely viable at top of vial. She insisted its zero.
CYA I'd still say 20ish.
So that's my issue.
I bought more stabilizer just in case.
I have no idea how long it takes to fully read. And why it would read 33-30 then now it isn't.
I refuse to add 4 lbs period!!
Second. She said add to skimmer. I said no I'll add to sock and hang like I did before she looked at me stupid and said um no that's all wrong.
I told her I will not be adding to the skimmer and explained why she told me groups like this are just opinions and pool stores and techs know better.
I had to leave.
Anyways. What do you all suggest??
Would CYA drop?
How long for proper level reading that I can trust?
And do I still run my pump 24/7 this first week????
Water is clear and pretty.
Oh should I do overnight test?? Not sure if I need to slam my new pool.
