    New liner, new water....no cya

    Currently filling my pool that was emptied for a new liner. Cya should be zero. The filling will take another day, add some bleach this evening with no cya to ward off any algae growth or just wait til tomorrow and add cya via sock. There have been no chemicals added thus far and this is day 2. Thanks for any replies.

    You can start adding CYA now in a sock attached to a float this was about 12 inches of water, use poolmath to know how much CYA to add to 30


    adding a cup of bleach would work great..

    Well I won't have any stabilizer until tomorrow. Could I put 1 puck in my chlorinator and feed slowly?

    You don't need CYA at night anyway. No UV from the sun. It'll be okay.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
