    New 24' SW above ground

    I just replaced my 7 year old 24' metal AG pool BBB with a 24' AG resin SALT pool due to the old pool rusting so bad. I have almost full of water and will start her up tomorrow. What method should I use to start up? Do I just get my parameters like cya, alkalinity, ph and free chlorine in check using my normal method? Once that's good do I just add xxx lbs of salt? I have a Hayward aquatrol salt generator if it makes any difference.

    Thanks for your help.

    You got it!

    It's easier to get things balanced and adjusted as a bleach pool. Then you're not also fussing with salt levels and SWG % runtimes.

    Get the pH right, add some CYA and then some bleach and let the kids in. Don't let them play with the CYA sock, though. You can let them play with the salt when you add it. They'll mix it better than you can and have fun doing it. Wait until you're done fussing with the rest before you add the salt. Let the salt mix for a day and when the SWG says it's happy, let it take over. You'll probably be running the SWG by Monday night.

    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!
