Hey folks, TFP is a great resource for learning about pools. Although with knowledge comes more money spent to do things right the first time. My wife wants to know why just using test strips and adding salt like we did a few years ago on our 14 foot standard Intex with SWG isn't enough. Anyway; I am learning more everyday but have a few questions in order to start our new pool off right.
I am at the level stage on the ground work and should get our pool up within the next few days depending on rain. What should I add or start with initially. After reading believe it should be CYA then Chlorine. In my case should I add CYA and salt (or salt plus liquid chlorine)according to manufacture specs, and then just let the pump run a day or so before testing and start up of SWG (or run SWG with CYA and salt/chlorine)?
Just want to make sure I hit the ground running and have it all ready to go once I get the wrinkles out and water in.
More info: Pool in direct sun most of the day so if I read correctly need the higher CYA.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
