I have been reading and reading and reading, so much good information on here, thanks so much!
Here's where I'm stuck. We just finished filling our pool last night and our pump is leaking, so we haven't been able to turn that on yet. (It seems to be a leaking gasket, so hopefully we can fix that tonight.) But here's where I'm confused. First of all, I'm confused with the amount of gallons I have in my pool. Intex says one thing and each of the calculators I have used, say another. Not sure which one to go with, since some of my Intex info has already proved inaccurate.
Then, I'm confused with where to start with my levels and how much bleach to start adding. I understand I should put my numbers in the calculator to see where I'm deficient and such....but nothing is in the pool yet. I've read I should start with the CYA and then go from there, so I tested that just now. But the water never got cloudy, so that means the reading is lower than 30? (which is the lowest mark on my test) But I haven't added any, because I haven't known how much?? Ack....I think I may be making this more complicated than it should be, but I haven't quite wrapped my brain around it yet.
Can anyone recommend where to start and what I should add initially??
Thank you, thank you!
