I'm new to here but was reading all your tips on TFP last year and decided this was the way I wanted to go as we suffered algae on and off last year and very high CYA using chlorine tablets and powered shock. Currently I am waiting for my TF100 test kit to be placed on my door mat (it's at my local post office as I type very excited about that!!). We opened on Saturday to start getting it clean and ready for the SWG to be fitted. The only thing I have done so far chemically wise is to raise ph and used bleach plus a couple of bags of shock I had left over as my CYA is usually very low as pool freezes in winter. It's clearing and just slightly cloudy in the deep end. My question is with starting the year on a SWG is it best to balance the pool ph, TA and CYA before throwing in the salt or after or during... I am not sure if there is an order I should be following and some gentle advice would be grateful. I have read pool school and SWG optimum levels but I can't seem to find anything for changing over and how best to achieve this.
