I joined late last year in prep for our pool this year. We received the pool from a family member and bought a new Liner and Filter. I feel kind of comfortable with what to do once the pool is up and running but I have a question or two about getting to that point. I also feel comfortable with the calculator but once again that's once the pool is already up and running.
1) should I use an opening kit to start off with a new fill? I'm guessing no but gotta ask.
2)What order should I raise the following in. CYA, PH, FC, TA. Also any recommendations for order and estimated amounts for fresh fill from city water would be appreciated. I will be taking a sample once filled and adding to this post before I start throwing any thing in unless you guys let me know that I can add a few things safely and then run testing. I will be filling the pool this coming Friday and Im sure I will have lots of questions this first year!
Thanks in Advance. This by far the most helpful place I have come across!
