I am an owner builder and I started my new pool 36 hours ago. Pump running at 1500 RPMs (speed 2) 24/7. This is a pebble plaster. ~17K gallons
I have 3 trichlor tabs in each skimmer. Questions:
1) Should I be concerned at this point with my chlorine being so low?
2) Should I be concerned about CH being too low?
3) Should I begin to add CYA?
4) I ordered a chlorine tab floater from Amazon that will be here tomorrow. Should I use this to fill with the trichlor tabs instead of putting them in the skimmers? If so, how many tabs should I put in?
