Hi pool people!!
On Wednesday we should have our newly constructed IG vinyl pool full of water. I've been reading this site now for over a month and am preparing to open my salt water pool. I've purchased 26 lbs of baking soda, 10 lbs of CYA and will buy the salt on Tuesday. My question is after I test my tap water and get my baseline readings, how is the best way to add baking soda, CYA and salt? I used the pool calculator to get enough of each to get to a close range if my levels were all zero to start. I've read about adding CYA to a sock in front of the return jet, is this a good idea? My kids will want to get in as soon as it gets full but I want to make sure all is safe before they do. Oh, and I have a Taylor 2006c which should be arriving in a day or two to test with. Thanks in advance for the help and take it easy on me, this is all totally new to me.
