Brand new to hot tub life (still waiting for electrician to run the line, so haven't even set it up yet), but I had a couple of questions. For reference, I will be using the dichlor-to-bleach route.
How do I add chemicals to a spa? Do the pumps need to be running? From what I've read, it seems like things "cycle" on the hot tub every couple of hours. Basically, what I'm getting at is... Should I ever add my chemicals (whatever they may be at the time) to standing water? Do I wait for the cycle? Do I turn on the pumps?
Last question: the instructions are to shock the hot tub once a week up to 12ppm. How long does it take for that to go down to 6ppm? From what I've read, it's uncomfortable to get into a hot tub with a FC above 10ppm (when following the dichlor method), so I was just wondering how long after shocking can I get into the hot tub comfortably?
Thank you all! I appreciate the help with my super newbie questions.
