They filled our pool last Friday and just yesterday they came out and added salt and started our SWG. Our pool was cloudy so they added two chlorine pucks (one in each skimmer) and added five bags of what they called Chlorine shock. Each bag was about 8 inches by 6 inches (im guestimating). He also put in 25 pounds of PH minus. From here on in, they will come out each week to clean the pool and filters, etc, but I would like to take over the chemicals. We set the SWG at 60% and am running the filter pump 12 hours a day, although we ran the pump an adduitional 12 hours yesterday to circulate the chemicals added. (I know not to use Chlorine pucks any more.)
We tested (using the TFT test kit) our water this morning and got the following results:
PH 8.2; CL 5; FC 8.5; CYA 65; TA 100, and CA 175
I plan to adjust chemicals each evening and am wondering if I should start adjusting or wait a day or so to see what develops from what was added yesterday.
