Hello, I have recently moved (October) and have acquired an underground 60,500 litre pool in Vancouver, BC. I'm a complete newbie trying to get my pool legs. A water reading from a local games store has recommended adding 133 kg of salt directly to the pool with the pump running. I'd unplugged the SWG over winter months and it remains unplugged; using a floater with chlorine pucks and am ready to get back to salt water. Salt reading was 1200 and ideal is 3400.
1)Can I add all of the salt at once or should it be spaced out? I understand that it should circulate 24 hours before plugging the SWG back in. And should I keep the chlorine floater in until I've officially turned on the salt water generator cell?
2) My CYA reading was 47 with 60-200 being the ideal. I bought SaltScapes Sunshield Stabilizer - should I wait until the salt has dispersed in the pool/ generator turned back on or can I proceed to add this stuff right away?
I look forward to learning how to manage my pool with confidence!
