I just opened my IG plaster pool. It was built last summer (opened it on Labor day). After getting the equipment up and running I made my first round of measurements with my new TF100 test kit. Here are my readings:
FC, CC, TC = 0
pH > 8.2
Temp 57 deg
I expected the FC, CC, and TC to be zero and the pH to be high (new plaster pool and all). But the CH reading seems off the charts (I assume because of new plaster?). I'm planning on tackling the pH first with MA and adding bleach to get the FC up. Once it's up there I'll fire up the SWG.
Any advice on the CH? Should I just wait until I get the pH under control and then check it again?
Thanks in advance. I've been lurking for the last several months and the forums have been a big help.
